On another note, he has in his lineage to Mohawk Brandt and Clara Barton, founder of The Red Cross. The sum of all of that has make him believe strongly in the causes of equality in healthcare and subsequently he works to help represent a position of strength from within chronic illness by going as far as he can in an industry and culture that is bent on competitive physical idealism, because as he said Genetically ill people are not your inferiors, we're the original oppressed minority. Let my people go, give us our healthcare.
