  Any update on this yet, Sarah?   

  I'm so tired of feeling like I have the "stepchild" of diseases, and one that is so "un-invisible" no less ..  

Frank talk about the DS / "All I ever wanted to be was thin, like that Rolling Stones dude ... "

Dealing with the government is a long process, but at least in the end it will be fixed. Update now is we have 170 cosponsors in the House of Reps and the bill has been introduced into the Senate. So it's time to write your Senators.
