DEATER FOUNDATION INC
June 22, 2010

I am distantly related to members of this family who has been individually and personally affected by a horrible disease. Reynold and Henry Deater were the first people afflicted and I remember them as a child slowly losing first toes and fingers and then half their legs. No one in the medical field could diagnose the disease, even after they volunteered themselves to be "guinea pigs" in a hospital in Philadelphia, undergoing horrific treatments including radiation to find a cure.
