Dear readers,

One of the questions that I have been asked about the Facebook page of the International Chiari Association (ICA) is what gave the nonprofit organization the idea to include the ages of Chiari sufferers that are under 18. 

I mentioned that I wanted people to see that many Chiari sufferers are children and that readers will be inspired by their courage.
