      Peres: Cancer is Treated with Hope

      President Shim'on Peres opened the Cancer Association's annual "Knock on the Door" fundraising campaign, Sunday, with a special event at the President's Residence, with the participation of recovering juvenile cancer victims.

      Expressing hope that all of the people of Israel would join the struggle, Peres stressed, "One of the ways to treat cancer is with hope and you volunteers rescue  the patients from the abysmal loneliness which has befallen them and give them warmth, attention and hope, which is why your volunteering is so precious."
