    Just made my six-month, $25 donation to Hank to help keep this site up and running. I don't come here as often as I did, and considered skipping a donation this time around, then thought about all the help I received when I was diagnosed in May 2015, and the support I received before and after my 9/30/15 surgery. The members of this site helped keep me from freaking out and I want it to be around for those who come after. I'm more than happy to contribute $50/year to make that happen.

    Not posting to pat myself on the back but to express my thanks to Hank and everyone here who helped (and continue to help) me on this journey.

    Hugs,
    Michele

    This site has taught me more in the ten years since I found it than what I learned, stumbling around medical articles, during my first forty years post surgery. Information and support are critical, before and after, OHS and few sites can match this one in providing "been there, done that" experience. I am way too old to understand the "ins and outs" of Internet financing but I am pretty sure it costs money to maintain a forum like this and I am happy to contribute.

      Thanks for the nudge, Honeybunny - just renewed mine too. I agree with you both - a valuable resource, wherever we are in the world.

          Count me "in" among the "regulars." Hank and Michelle have supported us from the very beginning, and I do a bit to help that continue.

          Hank, if you see this, THANK YOU!
