Clarity Update and a Call to Action Those of you who have been here for years have a sense of what Will has gone through, not only in dealing with his medical conditions but also in getting a diagnosis or access to medical care without one. For those who are not familiar with the situation, Will's immune system is systematically attacking and in some cases severely damaging his lungs, liver, sinuses, central nervous system, and connective tissues. His symptoms make simple activities many of us take for granted extraordinarily difficult, and it is nearly impossible for him to leave the house even for a visit to a nearby doctor save in very carefully controlled, limited circumstances. While his condition keeps him from posting as much as we would all like, he directs most of his available energy into building, updating, and maintaining the site behind the scenes on a daily basis. Here is Clarity's thread from the 2006 drive. Please take a moment to look at it - this is where things stood at that time, with no diagnosis, no medical care to help figure it out, not even consensus that it was all connected. Two years later, in 2008, Congress mandated that the Marine Corps notify former base residents of Camp Lejeune of a serious water contamination issue affecting a couple generations of Marines and their dependents. Today, in large part with BP's help and support, Will has a diagnosis, limited access to medical care, and at least some of the questions finally have answers. Semper Fi: Always Faithful MSNBC recently aired a documentary detailing the contamination and the work former Master Sergeant Jerry Ensminger has done to bring the issue to light. Here is where you can find information about the documentary, which is discussed in this thread.
