During the time we worked together to get out the March of Dimes Report I really did not have the opportunity to let you know of my awe and appreciation at how you turned the database and our original word document with some pictures, tables and graphs into the incredible publication it now is. My copies only arrived in SA a few days ago and since then I have really enjoyed reading something that a few months ago I was truly tired of seeing. The layout, design, colours etc make the Report so readable.

Yesterday, I received an e-mail from the geneticist who I consider the most qualified in the world to comment on our work. Her comment was simple: “A tour de force”, And your contribution certainly made the tour eminently and pleasantly available.

Thank you
Kind regards
