This article is realy helpful. Thank you for highlighting the importance of educating the people and especially at risk population family members. We, the youth, should share this information to all the people we know.

Great article. Thank you for highlighting the importance of educating the public and especially at risk population family members.

Thanks Steve,
Dan
