Mothers Donate Milk To Save Ailing Baby PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (AP) — Twenty-two-month old Chris Smith of Phoenix, Am., has received a life-giving supply of mother’s milk from a group of concerned new mothers here. Chris’ parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Bennett Smith, received a shipment of 540 ounces of the milk on Saturday, courtesy of the Portsmouth area Mothers Milk Program. Chris is sick with a rare genetic disease called acrodermatitis enterocathica. It causes him to bleed internally and break out in bright red, burn-like splotches when he eats foods other than mother’s milk which contains simple, digestible proteins and substances for protection against viruses and immunization. The Portsmouth mothers answered a plea for help from Chris’ parents through the Junior Chamber of Commerce of both cities. The supply should last him 18 I days, the group said.

But what you doing about your cough? There are two kinds of coughs: Temporary ones that usually come and go with a cold, and chronic ones that hang on and get worse. Temporary ones are not much of a problem. They need little if any treatment. But those chronic ones need attention and fast. They could indicate Bronchitis or Emphysema, or Lung Cancer, all of which are treatable or even curable if you don't wait too long, lf you do put it off, any of them could kill you much too soon. Take your nagging cough to your doctor. Who knows, you might just leave it there and wouldn't that be a blessed relief.
