Why I have reservations about supporting O.U.C.H.:

"O.U.C.H. serves people with cluster headaches, their families and other individuals and institutions affected by the affliction, including, but not limited to, the medical community, researchers, drug companies, insurance companies, schools and employers."
In my opinion they (pharmacuetical companies) already have too many hands in the cookie jar.
They will happily keep on making drugs that keep us dependant upon them (more $$$)but do not expect them to create anything that would cure us. Heaven forbid, how ever would they make their $$$. Oh noooo. that would never do. Even if some honest researcher finds "a breakthrough" for us we'll never know about it. You guess why.
I am behind everything else that O.U.C.H. stands for and think that this is a timely and worthwhile organization. I just can't be 100% behind it when I know that the "P.I." will have their fingers in the pie.
I have probably already stepped on some toes here...
Over-dramatic? I don't think so. I've done my homework.
