I am the daughter of a Vietnam vet. My dad was there and exposed to agent orange. I was born with a birth defect. I'm told it's called Poland's syndrome. I also have Graves thyroid disease, celiac disease, hypoglycemic, my joints ache daily. I'm 43. My younger brother also is dealing with issues and was born with a defect.

I hope this petition works for you, Tracey ! I recently found out that my grandson (11 years old) also has Poland's disease. Can you offer me any thoughts on the difficulties you have lived through so I may have some insight on this as Trevor grows?

My brother was born in 1974 with a condition called Hydrocephalus. He was also blind and deaf at birth. He was given a life expectancy of approximately one year. Yet he hung on till 11 days from his sixth birthday. By this time he had no motor function left in his extremities. Yes my father fought in Vietnam and was in the heavier concentrated areas sprayed with the dioxin. There was nothing that could have been done for my brother and now there might be a chance to help others from suffering the same fate. The dioxin had taken it's toll on my father as well. He had passed away in early 2011 of numerous medical conditions. While the wounds still run deep for me it will be a relief if finally lives can be saved in the future.
