Rosen reported that during Grandparents Spread News About Children's Disease MIAMI (AP) At an age when most people are relaxing and enjoying life, the John Ro- manos are girding for battle with the little-known children's disease that took the life of their only grandson. John Romano, 73, and his wife Margaret, GO, are having a med- ical alert printed listing the symptoms of Reye's Syndrome. They plan to send copies to ev- ery one of the nation's nurseries and to playgrounds and parents' groups. "We can't do it all at Mrs. Romano said Thursday. "We have to do it in bits and pieces. We only have a small income. "But we're willing to work 20 hours a day out of every 24. We will go to every state just Florida. We intend to alert them all over the country." Their grandson, John's name- sake, died May 7 of Reye's Syndrome. The deaths of four other Mia- mi children and others across the country have been attribu- ted to the disease in the past few months. Doctors say all might have been saved by quicker diagnosis and expert treatment. "If we had only known about the other cases and the way those children had been affect- ed, we would have taken little John right to the hospital, not to his pediatrician. He's a good man but he never heard of Mrs. Romano said. The child suffered from a fe- ver, a backache and vomiting. He was taken to the doctor, who said it looked like intestinal flu. When the youngster went into a coma later the same night, he was rushed to a hos- pital. He died 12 days later. Since the death of young John, the Romanos have studied everything they could get about Reye's Syndrome, which kills by damaging the victim's intes- tbes, liver and brain and often follows a mild respiratory Ul- ness.

The 12-year-old son of Sen. Kennedy (D-Mass.) had his right leg amputated just above the knee last November after being stricken with a form Of bone cancer called "chondrosar- oma." The latter is a malignancy originating in cartilage associat- back tears. "But I wish some- body had created a panic for us. If my daughter-in-law had known anything about this, we would have been ahead of the game.

Young Kennedy's doctors have said there is no present ev- idence of any recurrence. Brooklyn Woman Charged In Shootinq of Ex-Husband HANNIBAL, Mo.
