We have decided to re-establish the message board for members of our support group email list. We've had so many new transplants lately that there are lots of new stories to share, new questions to be asked and new advice to be given. It's the most efficient means of communication that we have, so let's use it to our advantage to help each other.

No one else will be able to read or post messages, so we should be able to avoid spam and ads, and we will be assured that we can talk to each other without being bothered by other people. The only people posting will be approved by the group and will be part of our lung transplant support group.

You don't have to join. You can if you want to. You don't have to post any messages. You are welcome to just read what the others post if that's what you prefer. You might just want to read along for a while and see what you think.

We hope you will find it a useful tool - to ask questions, share advice, worry about things - and get info so you can stop worrying about things, too!

We won't give any MEDICAL advice - and if you have any questions of a medical nature, please call your doctor or the transplant center. We don't want to take any chances with anybody's health here!! :)

So let's give this a try again and see how it works out.
