  • We need OLD/USED IC Survival Guides For Low Income Patients


    One of the things that I do behind the scenes is provide free copies of the IC Survival Guide (among other materials) for low income patients who contact our office. Sometimes, IC patients buy 5 or 6 and ask them to be placed in our low income fund. Others send us old copies that we then redistribute.

    I just got off of the phone with an IC patient in Florida, 50 years old, severe IC, blood in her urine... who is still being told that it's all in her head. Aside from encouraging her to get to her doctor TODAY to have the blood checked out, what strikes me most here is that not a single person told her that they believed her. That's just so sad.

    Unfortunately, I am now completely out of donated IC Survival Guides.

    If YOU have an old copy of the book that you would like to make available to other patients in need, I would really appreciate it if you could send it to me so that I can redistribute it.

    Please send to:
    Jill Osborne
    4983 Sonoma Highway, Suite L
    Santa Rosa, CA 95409

    If you would like to buy five or more books for the program, we can give you a 25% discount of the purchase price. Call me directly if you'd like to do this rather than go through the order center. (707)538-9442.

    Thanks bunches!
