Register Now!!

Vietnam Veterans of America Agent Orange/Dioxin Committee is asking the children of Vietnam veterans exposed to Agent Orange; adult children (we recommend you register your children also) who are ill and/or have birth defects, learning disabilities and/or mental health issues; to register with Birth Defect Research for Children, Inc. National Birth Defect Registry.

Participation in the registry includes:

  • The questionnaire will ask about you (the child) or your disabilities; health and family history of both parents; exposures during pregnancy and occupational exposures.
  • A special section will ask about the veteran’s service in Vietnam. This section was designed in collaboration with the New Jersey State Agent Orange Commission.
  • Collected data will be used for a study of the pattern of birth defects and disabilities that have been most frequently reported in the children of Vietnam veterans.
  • All data are confidential. Your permission would be requested before any researcher would get in touch with you.

 

For more information contact Betty Mekdeci, 407-895-0802 or send email to betty@birthdefects.org.

    I’m a child of a veteran exposed and I have always had back and neck pain, I have carpal tunnel, degenerative disc disease, a tumor growing on t1, bipolar, major depression and anxiety. My skin is always crawling I get rashes that so far approximately 8 years later still no doctor has given me a diagnosis I itch to the point of scratching my skin off. I have 2 other sisters that belong to my father and one that doesn’t. The one that isn’t my father’s is the oldest of us 4 and she has none of the problems we do.

    I have had 3 family members die young. One I know for sure died from the effects of agent orange. Our children and their children also have disabilities from I am sure agent orange chemicals. One grandchild had a cleft lip, daughter has a cervix CA cells in progress. 3 of our daughters have had difficulty getting pregnant. One grand daughter had her cvery’s removed at 13. One daughter told she could not have children because of female problem issues. All from agent orange chemicals.
