2/21/2012 - Great site to help raise schizencephaly awareness

2/21/12 - Fantastic site for parents dealing with schizencephaly and to help raise awareness about schizencepahaly Tricia SchizencephalyAwareness Dennis
Schizencephaly awareness needs to be raised for both humans and animals.  Please take the time to visit the above site or use the link on the right of the page. 

According to the Humane Society of the United States, there are 78.2 million dogs in the U.S. (http://www.humanesociety.org/).  Some sites state that schizencephaly affect 1.54 per 100,000 people.  According to rightdiagnosis.com, schizencephaly affects 1 in 2719 people or 0.04% of the population (http://www.rightdiagnosis.com/lists/preval.htm).  The fact is that no one is sure how many people schizencephaly truly affects.  If we assume these same statistics in dogs, it equates to somewhere between 1,150 and 31,280 dogs out there with schizencephaly in the U.S. alone.

Please help me to get the word out about Cletus and schizencephaly.  Contact your local news organization about Cletus or have your local news organization contact me directly at dsilber27@hotmail.com

Thank you for your support,

Doug & Cletus
