Patricia Kane Hennin Cancer Research Fund

The intent for the Patricia Kane Hennin Cancer Research Fund is to raise one million dollars in principal and then to Fund Pure Research in Breast Cancer cell development and metastasis, especially as induced by estrogen and other hormones. Patsy believed she was dying as a result of prescribed hormone replacement therapy. While estrogen is dangerous to all women, one third of women are very estrogen sensitive and very cancer prone. I wish to avoid monies ending up favoring pharmaceutical company strategies selling chemotherapy products which prolong cancer life rather than curing sudden cell multiplication. I do not have faith in large institutionalized organizations that for years have failed to solve this problem while consuming vast resources. I am looking for a Marie Curie or Jonas Salk, not a drone hoping to be hired by Wyeth, Pfizer, Merck, et al. Two billion dollars are spent on Cancer Research per year while the drug companies like Wyeth, the seller of estrogen that causes 20,000 cancers per year, earn $12 to $35 billion per year. It is important to me that the charitable donations I manage to raise go to the right place: Pure Cancer Cell Development Research.

    After taking their Design & Build course, I had the confidence to build this timber frame house, from a version of their stock plans. And you will too.

    We drove thirteen hours through a blizzard to take the timber framing course and it was worth it. You can tell this family has been teaching people since the 70's. 70's?! These guys are great. I hope to be back to learn but just saying "HI" would be a win. They've probably mapped out every minute of the week for the students but it still feels relaxed. Best of all, I can say with confidence, I can build a house. A timber structure. And I will

    Excellent course on house building. Teaches about every aspect of house including good design principles.

    Shelter is a phenomenal resource of skill, intelligence, and good people. I took the two week design/build course and it was wonderful. I left with the confidence to assess my own home and any future home that I may build or purchase. Shelter is the real deal.

    Instructors make sure their lectures are clear and understandable to the students. Great follow through.

    Nothing can beat the hands-on experience that my daughter and I enjoyed for three weeks at the shelter institute. I have kept in touch ever since. I am disappointed that I cannot leave a comment on Pats chainsaw videos. The system does not seem to acknowledge our presence.

    As a second generation carpenter/joiner Shelter Institute's online course is a must for all who are interested in Timber Framing and the enjoyment of life.

    I have found the team to be responsive, caring and helpful. A pleasure to deal with.
