    Burkitt's lymphoma is aggressive - doubling in mass every hours - and typically attacks the jaw or abdomen. Early discoveries revealed the cancer's link with the malaria parasite and identified a new microbe - Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) - the first indication viruses could help cause cancer in humans. Miriam Sevy was a force of nature. That is how Dr. Steve Kussick, president of the board for the all-volunteer, Seattle-based Burkitt’s Lymphoma Fund for Africa, remembers the nonprofit’s founder.. A financial consultant with a passion for community service, Sevy started BLFA after a trip to western Kenya in arranged by the global health organization PATH. PREFACE. This book is intended to take up the story of prehistoric industrial development in North-western Europe from the point at which Mr M.C. Burkitt's Our Early Ancestors left it. While not a sequel to that work, mine presupposes such knowledge of general prehistory and the New Stone Age as may be found there and is intended to appeal to the same class of students.
