I think I need a list too! Put that on my list of 100 things to do before I die...write a list.

You can achieve #100 by easily participating in the Johns Hopkins Hirschsprung's Disease Study:

You simply have your own medical professional draw blood samples into the test tubes they'll send you, and overnight them back at the lab's expense. Read all info on the website under Getting Involved.

This is in the Top 5 on my list!
