You Can Make a Difference
Have you ever heard of Fibrosing Mediastintis or FM? FM is a reaction to the inhalation of a fungus (Histoplasmosis) that is in the soil of the Ohio-Mississippi River Valley Area and is found worldwide. Currently there are only 300-400 people in the U.S. diagnosed with FM. Because it is such a rare disease Medicare does not recognize it and refuses to pay certain health costs. But more important that by recognizing this disease will help raise interest and funding for research which is currently almost nonexistent. The link below will take you to a petition sight regarding this disease, Fibrosing Mediastintis or FM. Please take the time to sign this petition it will only take a moment. Sign the petition here. You can make a difference. I make this request on behalf of my friend Dona Anderson who has this disease.
