Beautiful performance by the multi-talented Dr. Collins. Never underestimate the power of faith, fortitude and folk music.
Thank you for your leadership NIH and Dr. Collins. Due to hearing your song, “love till you loved it away” is a new motto I will adopt for my life and I will now try to look at 2020 as the year we began to “love all the darkness away.”
Thank you Dr Collins, singing in a mask is a world championship. I give you the Nobel Prize. The best for Christmas time from Poland.
Thank you for the tireless research that led to my son’s medicine. G551d mutation Cystic Fibrosis and Kalydeco. Nice folk music, too!
