No more deformities which are the cause of social stigma by early detection and chemotherapy! Let patients learn how to avoid getting deformed to keep normal ADL & QOL. Fight against the nerve damage and stop the progressive deformities by organizing the team approach. Instead of intense efforts of taking care by well organized team work, deformities are resulted inevitably in some cases. Let their deformities be out of the way of their keeping normal community lives without any prejudice, respecting their human rights and dignity.
