Luckily I was able to replace these particular links with what a appears to be a permanent reference at the National Cancer Institute - an institution that I hope will be around for a while. However, I haven't been so lucky with other expired links on my other pages so that's why I'm growing more reluctant to link anything off my site anymore.
