Zephyr is Front-Page News. Literally!
« on: August 17, 2006, 07:41:13 AM »
Hi Gang... and greetings from Toronto. 

It's been exceedingly busy this week, so please forgive my absence.

I just wanted to let everyone know that Zephyr -- Loreen Willenberg -- is, literally, front-page news after yesterday's press conference here at the Toronto Convention Center. 

Here's a link to the lead article in today's Globe and Mail:


I'm very much looking forward to reviewing some of the highlights from the conference this Saturday in Montreal, for all those attending AMG.  For those who aren't, feel free to browse my growing-by-the-minute conference coverage on AIDSmeds:


Cheers to everyone,

Tim Horn

Thank you, Tim for this update.
I think it's incredible that Loreen is making such major progress already! ;D

         Indeed we are proud of our very own Zephyr....Having met and spoken with her in Montreal I am more impress than ever with this compassionate and dedicated lady.  We are fortunate indeed to have her in our midst...her tireless energy and dedication does us all proud.  The fact that everyone else knows now makes it all the sweeter.

A Big Thumbs Up to Loreen!!!!

Zeph is going to need a press agent soon.  I hope she is doing well with all this attention.   I can imagine it is a bit overwhelming.

Thanks for everything Zeph :)

Hello Everyone!!

Minh has kindly let me use his computer to post a greeting to you from Montreal...we've just returned from breakfast, and I've only now logged in to read this thread so kindly posted by Tim Horn for me.

The IAC experience was one of the most INCREDIBLE events I've ever had. I'm still processing the myriad of emotions and thoughts from the day, the people, and the sheer wonder that was the Press Conference and ensuing crush of journalists from all over the world who were so curious to speak to Dr. Walker and myself.

I will write more later.

I love all of you so much...

(hey, Matty....now I'm a totally blond Media Whore) :o
