How many people out there are suffering as Melody suffers? This is why ARD awareness is so vital. Melody's case will require extensive surgical intervention in Europe. Thanks to the Dallas, Texas News (Mike Young, staff writer) for placing this illness on the front lines where it belongs! His compassion and eagerness to help Melody, to help promote ARD awareness is a breath of fresh air. Thankfully, some media personnel are not afraid to broach the subject of adhesions, an illness most often caused by surgical procedures. Thanks also to Dr. Orhan Bukulmez for his contribution to the article. Update: Melody is home and recovering. An update about her surgery in Germany will be coming out soon!
