The February/March 2013 issue contained a request for donations to the American Brain Foundation. A number of brain diseases were mentioned in the ad, but it seems they left off one disease that over 10,000,000 people [including children] suffer from: essential tremor. Is this not considered a brain disease? I have essential tremor, and my son and two of my grandchildren do as well.
