From July 14, this plea (in part) from Kristal Bisbee Long, who grew up in Toledo, on Facebook: I am reaching out to the area in seek of information re:I need help from anyone who grew up in or knows someone who grew up in Toledo Washington. I am conducting research regarding the number of individuals afflicted with multiple sclerosis from our area...four people* within 15 miles of each other, from a relatively small population...pretty much the same age...curious! If more are out there I'd like to know about it. If anyone would like to contact me regarding this please send me a private message.
I will keep all information confidential other than numbers.
