If your brother was a victim of the affects of Agent Orange we might be able to assist you in his health issues. Birth Defect Research for Children has collected data on thousands of cases of children reported by their parents to the Registry. The suggested pattern of adverse outcomes includes increases in learning, attention, immune and endocrine disorders .
This last year, our organization has submitted a Visionary Idea to National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIESH) to develop a Center to provide diagnosis and treatment to Vietnam Veterans’ children with structural and/or functional disabilities. If adopted this idea would become part of the NIESH Five Year Strategic Plan. Even though our organization has submitted the idea, it is not certain that the idea will be approved. The Vietnam Veterans of America have also made the Centers Project part of their legislative agenda .
The attached Centers outline discusses the desired outcomes that our organization is hoping to see implemented. We would also like to encourage you’re brother to register in our National Birth Defect Registry if you have not already done so, this way we can further our research and project development.
Please let us know if you would like to join us in supporting the “Children’s Center” project and we can suggest ways you can help.
I hope this was helpful to you in some way.
With Best Regards,
Outreach & Development Coordinator
