ACCESS. ACTION. AMBASSADORS.
Genetic damage in offspring due to radiation exposure is well known, but not well documented for our generation to access.
The medical impacts are important to track for this and future generations. We’ve watched our parents suffer the consequences, our children, for those able to bear children, and many now, their grand-children. Managing various health complications without access to critical information is an impact that most know nothing about. It became clear during my journey that there exists a need for medical information and resources become less burdensome.
Critical information is required for these victims to pursue proper medical care. Due to the levels of secrecy their countries may have imposed, information is either restricted, classified by various departments of various governments.
Children of Atomic Veterans does not conduct studies or research. We are not taking political positions. We recognize identified subgroups and are simply building bridges to inform, and provide a vehicle for those of us impacted to make ourselves available for research, for current and future generations. As we begin our first steps out of the shadows, so does our need to understand the long-term physical impacts to ourselves and our families.
Building Bridges for Genetic Research & Understanding Outcomes. Below you will find links to posted studies that organizations with interest to either have studies conducted and those volunteer victims available for genetic research, and as you can see, very humanitarian goals whose efforts and results will no doubt have a positive impact avoiding future unintended consequences. Some of these studies need funding and resources. We hope to align individuals and corporations that can facilitate our efforts to rectify long overdue outreach to gain the full insights we can and acknowledgment that
The “Projects” we support are designed to help not only Atomic Veterans and their families, they can go a long way to advance the genetic understandings impacting nuclear energy workers and IR casualties worldwide. Please see he PROJECTS section for the most relevant
We are seeking liaisons to act as Atomic Ambassadors where we can direct specific inquiries from each participating country if they are struggling to find a local resource, or to help update us on emerging government resources for veterans and their families. While we may become an informational resource for civilians impacted by ionizing radiation our focus is the Atomic Veterans and their descendants.
We are developing both a a Board of Directors as well as a Board of Advisors as we move through the incubation stage of organizing this effort. Additionally we will be seeking Atomic Angels to assist with some of our long term and short term goals. Financial assistance with determine how quickly we can accomplish some of them, and those who can volunteer their time as short term projects arise. If you represent a services, study, research group or government organization.
