    I just discovered your organization today. I would like some of your precious time to discuss my illness.

    Since the Fall of 2009, I have seen a general practitioner, three (3) neurologists, an infectious disease, naturopath, and functional doctors, and my condition continues to progress.

    So, bless all of them. They have used all their resources, however, I do not think they know.

    My story is still being written and I sincerely hope it has a fairy tale ending.

    Waiting anxiously for your reply 3D, Dennis Dunlap, Ph. D.
