             DIANN SHADDOX FOUNDATION FOR ESSENTIAL TREMORS

  (Mr. WILSON of South Carolina asked and was given permission to 
address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. WILSON of South Carolina. Mr. Speaker, last month, I had the 
opportunity to meet with Diann Shaddox of North Augusta, South 
Carolina, founder of the Diann Shaddox Foundation for Essential 
Tremors.
  Essential tremor is a neurological condition that causes the 
trembling of the hands, head, voice, legs, or body and affects nearly 
10 million people in the United States. Despite its prevalence, it 
wasn't until 2013 that essential tremor was given its own specific 
diagnosis apart from other tremors.
  Diann Shaddox was diagnosed with essential tremors in her early 
twenties. Since then, Diann has acted as an advocate for awareness and, 
for over 35 years, has dedicated her life to finding a cure for 
essential tremors.
  The mission of the Diann Shaddox Foundation for Essential Tremors is 
to educate and increase awareness about people afflicted with essential 
tremor, which is the largest movement disorder in the world. The 
foundation also collects donations for medical research in the hope of 
discovering the cause and a cure, and I wish them continued success on 
their important mission.
  In conclusion, God bless our troops, and we will never forget 
September the 11th in the global war on terrorism.
