Tracking Project Suggestion

Sharon, Marie, Jeff, Sport, and Randi:

I will "dump" your responses into a surveymonkey survey and post the link on the message board so we could all see what this would look like.

Why arent any of you using the media to get this out there?

Here is a tip folks

I am about to begin informing European media personalities who suffer from MS about CCSVI.

You guys in the US could start by contacting people such as Montell Williams or Richard Pryor. Ge the word in the right ear and watch what transpires.


Williams even runs his own MS foundation with money available for research!!! Come on folks get writing, calling and informing.
