I tried to make the background on this page from a microscopic view of rhabdomyosarcoma. It was so disgusting and ugly, I opted to give you this restful star field instead. I'll include a small picture at the bottom of this page, so you can see what I mean. I've liked having the image; it helps me get a mental picture of the monster Joseph is fighting.
I put up this page separately so that anyone researching rhabdo could go to the best resources immediately, without having to poke around through search engines on the large cancer web sites. Knowledge is power, get all of it you can.
