As the parent of an affected child,
the author of this website and a volunteer for Generation Rescue I
frequently get calls and emails from parents and caregivers with
questions. Here are some of the questions that I receive most
often and presumably some of you have. Click on the question to
find my response. However, do remember that these answers are my
own opinions as an experienced mother of a recovering child and should
not be considered medical advice or replace you own judgment. I
encourage you to use them only as a place to start your own research.
