I got a general diagnosis of this disease 16 years ago. Could not get any info via the internet at that time.

Thank goodness for a website like this! Friends, advice, accurate information regarding symptoms, procedures, advances. A chat forum for all to contribute their thoughts, fears, happiness, etc.

Congratulations and please.........many, many more years to come.

This site has become by salvation in accepting my disease and learning to go on in a normal and productive fashion.

Again, Congrats.........and thank you.............
Tru

It is what it is...........

What a wonder that this site has grown to help so many. I feel fortunate to be a part of a community that has helped so many, myself included, that is a place to go to and find accurate information and a forum with such supportive, caring people. I finally found a place where others truly understand.

Congratulations and thank you, Shelley for your foresight and many thanks to all of the volunteers who make all of this available to the rest of us.

Congrats and much thanks to all concerned, especially Shelley and the whole gang of volunteers (many behind the scenes that we don't ever see) who make this great place happen for all of us. This is a fantastic place to come for information and support.
Warm wishes,
