On this day in 2008:

Paul O'Gorman Leukaemia Research Centre Opened
Dr Richard Rockefeller opened the Paul O'Gorman Leukaemia Research Centre saying "The leukaemias are among the harshest of cancers. Much progress has been made to date, but a great deal remains to be done. I have chosen to support the POGRC because among all the world's researchers, Dr. Tessa Holyoake and her extraordinary staff stand out as offering the greatest promise of a medical cure for the leukaemia from which I have suffered. It is my great honour to open the Paul O'Gorman Research Centre."
