Healingwell has helped so many of us get together and share. Our founder, Mr. Peter Waite, has done a fantastic job bringing people with ailments together in ways that no one else can say. For me, I came here when diagnosed. And in short time, I wanted to give back to the site that gave so much to me. I still get support that is just as valuable as day one as a member here. I am posting some vitals about HW and how you can help. Startng with the link that accepts donations:
