I attended the conference in monticetto, where dr. daniel peterson spoke about the new research center to be built in reno, nv. annette whittemore who is supporting the building of this center was also there. you can google and find out more. I was in reno recently. and my son lives just below the job site which is on the unr campus. I decided to try and get a job there. I am an operator who specializes in dirt work, pipe etc. they had just broke ground that day!!! I waited for the owners of the company to come back into town so I could meet them personally. but I never got that far. they see a girl coming and are wary. but I have 24 yrs experience. I have not given up thou. I could bring a lot of attention to this job thru my union for one. an operator working on a job site that has the disease would be great pr. especially since I cannot get them to pay for hardly any of my treatment. I plan to write them a letter. plus annette whittemore also. since she is funding the project. I'm sure she would love the attention that I could bring the project. it is going to be a huge facility. and promises to bring help to us all!!
