    Wolfaleena~ More info. can be found on Hopekeepers support groups on the Rest Ministries website. It is a Christian based support website for those with chronic illnesses.

    HopeKeepers support groups are support groups/Bible studies designed to meet the emotional and spiritual needs of the person who lives with chronic illness or pain, through a Christian environment.

    Through the support group/Bible study setting you will have the opportunity to grow spiritually, while surrounded by others who share similar circumstances, unrevealed answers, and even joys, while living with a chronic illness or physical pain.

    Rest Ministries also sponsors an Invisible Illness week with a multitude of podcasts, articles, etc. It is the week of Sept. 14th - 20th. You can get more info. at

    I am eternally grateful for the ICN and Rest Ministries. Now if only I could find a local IC Support Group, I would be all set!

          I live in the Freehold/Manalapan area and am interested in a support group too! Does anyone know of any. My IC dr. is in Philly and I travel in to see her so I might consider a Phildadelphia group too.

              Yes, I have been a patient of Dr. Whitmore's sinnce 2001. I am going there tomorrow to see Jennifer. She is great. I'll probably get some trigger point injections. The muscles are pretty sore from being in spasm! Between IC and PFD I donn't know what's what!
              I think the Voorhes group would be too far for me.

                Hi- I live in Gloucester County- Washington Township. I would LOVE to meet anyone close by with IC. I see Dr. Babin in Turnersville. She is wonderful and really is the only doctor who has helped me with all of this.

                    Dr. Babin is an IC specialist in Turnersville. She has a great bedside manner and appointments are easy to get. I recommend her highly. Does anyone have info on the Voorhees group? I would love to go sometime.
