When I first found this site, I instantly knew this was going to be a daily resource for me and was so impressed with the wealth of information I sent in a donation before I even signed up.
I think no matter how small the donation, it is something we should all do periodically to support this site. There is no pressure to do so - it just seems like the right thing to do. If buying merchandise is not your thing - then think about
sending in a donation.
I know I could not find a better support network than here....saves me a ton of time, effort and gas money going to meetings outside. Not even sure where they even are in my area - if any - and they would not be often enough to give me the information I need.
A big "GROUP HUG" to all of you out there who make this forum such an important place. You certainly help me cope with all of this and have helped my husband have a better understanding and tolerance. (I pray we are lucky enough to have the Mayo Clinic offer some additional intervention to help him attain a remission or get a better understanding of what his options are.)
