Kidding, but a really cool new product:

You can find many things in Williams-Sonoma, the kitchenware retailer. Cookie sheets. Spatulas. And, oh yeah, an idea for treating gunshot wounds. At least, that's what RevMedx found.
The U.S. military had asked the medical technology company to come up with a solution for stopping gunshot and shrapnel wounds from bleeding out. The working idea was a medical version of Fix-a-Flat, the foam you squirt in punctured tires to plug up a hole. (Perhaps the military had been browsing at Pep Boys.) Instead, it was a sponge that solved the problem, says Andrew Barofsky, RevMedx's CEO.

Show the bravest of the brave kids that you have their back.  Go to http://www.childrenscancercenter.org/

Just check out the site or maybe like them on Facebook . .  or Share the site on Facebook, re-tweet one of their tweets.  Not everyone can give money to support this great cause, but its easy to give 10 seconds of your time to help spread the word about The Children\'s Cancer Center
