    Mary Svikhart should be commended . Instead of negative replies from doctors,
    she didn't give up, she kept looking and checking and searching. A brave woman
    who wouldn't let her condition shut her down. Your article tells her of her plight,
    and might help direct someone who can give her helpful advice. It also alerts people to a rare and serious condition .Very important.
