Note from Charles:

John "is very actively contacting the Governor, Lt. Governor, the State D.A. and many others as he gets run in circles from one to the other being told not our department; try this number! He has had doctors here blatantly tell him that they don't see anything and has he had any mental treatment, and then blatantly tell him that they would not say anything against BP! We cannot find doctors here to do the VOC test and had to make a 5 hour round trip to get one done... I hope this helps others."

Note from Coastal Warriors:

"Charles and John are sharing their story and their test results below to not only get the medical help they deserve, but to bring attention to the fact that many people are ill, and NOTHING is being done to assist, inform, or control what is happening to the entire Gulf Region.

"Please share this with all media sources in your area, and email this text and these images to your local, state and federal representatives. ... Public awareness and exposure to date is the only mechanism that seems to be effective..."
