If you use FrameMaker, one name you must know is Steve Skirsch, the  
man who, along with Charles Corfield, David Murray, and a few others,  
started the company Frame Technology in 1986 and released FrameMaker  
1.0 the following year. The rest, as they say, is history.

While clicking around on the FM4OSX Web site the other day, I landed  
at <http://skirsch.com/>, where I was shocked to read that Steve has  
been diagnosed with a rare and incurable blood cancer called  
"Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia." He may have only 5 years left, but  
he intends to try and change the outcome and has set up the Kirsch  
Fund for Waldenstrom's Research to fund research in to the disease.

If you'd like to to donate to his fund, you can do so online at
