Subject: [Melungeon] Advocacy Alert
Date: Mon, 22 Apr 2002 00:15:06 -0700 (PDT)


This advocacy alert pertains to scleroderma. This is the disease my
sister Judy has, there is no cure. Of the people suffering from this
disease, 80% are women between the ages of 25 and 55. Choctaw, or
Choctaw descendants seem to contract the disease at a greater rate
then the general population of the US. Please read the House Bill
(it's not too long, surprisingly) and contact your Representative and
urge him or her to support it. Thank you.
