I also told Tammy that CVS Pharmacy often donates medical equipment to people. She said in another email that Russ will see my email to her about that.

Okay, I haven't read all of the articles on this family...well just because I haven't. Are they in the U.S. to stay? Will they ever be able to return to Iraq or will they be seen as traitors and killed?

Brother Hayes took the lead role in working to secure the visa. He was granted permission to spend extra time working on the request by a high-ranking officer based in Baghdad. That man, a full colonel, was also the father of a child with dwarfism.
Hope that answers your question. My guess is they are here to stay.

That's wonderful cclngthr. I've been sharing the website on Facebook, Twitter and even over on the TLC boards.(I registered today only to post the website info).
Just think if every LPBW viewer donated just a dollar, it would definitely change their lives.

Did you take a long shower after visiting TLC? Even I won't go there!

Linky to Facebook page? I might be able to create a fan site on Facebook, which can get more exposure.
