Hi Guys & Gals,
I am posting this as an extension of a campaign that is already running in the prostate cancer forum in order to help support HealingWell and its users. We currently have 49,561 registered at HealingWell and just 1 man running the website with a team of 55 volunteer moderators spanning 27 forums.
We are challenging everyone who can to donate a small sum to HealingWell. If 10% of the registered users donated $10 we could raise nearly $50,000. Thats a lot of money. We could use the money to help improve the services we currently have and even expand to help more people.
So the challenge is this... Can you help?

Everyone has a guardian angel. They help pick you up when you fall, comfort you through your times of need and help you appreciate the times when things are going well.

Hi all,
I'm from the prostate cancer forum. I saw Darrens post on our little campaign and thought to come in and let you know the value of HW to us with prostate cancer. There are not very many forums to speak with a fellow cancer patient and for me HW has opened my eyes on the power of knowledge. Through HW I found a pool of men, or their spouses, that have lived this experience and was able to get out of it what keeps me positive and believing I can win this battle. Without HW I would of course continue to seek out support groups but they would not be as effective as this 24 hour site is. I encourage you to help. Mr. Waite has done us a great service by building these forums but we, the HW users, are the ones who have grown to depend on our contacts here and can best support his efforts to keep us online and up to date with the necessary technology to make it efficient. Thank you all and God Bless.

Thanks for reminding us Darren.  After being diagnosed with epilepsy last summer, I would have been lost without this site.  Please everyone, if you can't afford $10.00, give what you can.
Another thought, I pay my bills on-line every month and probably a lot of you do.  If you can afford it, how about another "click" on the Help support Healingwell and send in $5 or $10 or even $2 on a monthly basis?  If you can't afford it, please don't feel pressured.
