Some are hard to take, but I feel I must read them in order to prepare myself for unanticipated issues.  Plus, I want to know what's going on.  Publicizing these stories, especially about the patients with YOAD, raise awareness.

 
Seth Rogen, who is an actor, gave an interview to a magazine about helping his MIL with YOUD.  He began a foundation to raise money to assist in paying for in-home care for patients who could not afford it.   

 
He also addressed Congress about the need for more research. 

 
Here is his interview:

Here is his Congressional speech:

Seth Rogen talks about the need for more research money, Congress is not too concerned:
