TAY-SACHS CAN'T KILL YOU
BUT IT'S DEADLY FOR YOUR CHILD . . . OR GRANDCHILD

Tay-Sachs. For the unaware, it means little.
For those with a Tay-Sachs child, it means
helplessness, pain, suffering and — in-
evitably — death.
There is no cure for this dreaded genetic

disease, which afflicts Ashkenazi Jews 10
times as frequently as the general popula-
tion. But a simple test can help prevent its
occurrence. Whether you're male or
female, please plan on participating at a
