  • IC Petition to Congress!

    I found this website online today about a petition to congress about funding for research for IC. I do not know if many of you already know about it or signed it but there is only 2030 signatures so far. With so many of us suffering there should be many more signatures on it. Please pass this petition on to family and friends and sign it(add your name to the list) if you have not already! We IC sufferers need all the help we can get! Here is the link to the petitionlink removed)

    (FOLKS- THIS IS A VERY OLD PETITION... PROBABLY MORE THAN 7 YEARS OLD AND COMPLETELY USELESS. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS SURVEY - JILL)

    I suggest you not share personal information on that site until we have had an opportunity to check it out.

        You are right about checking it out first! I hope it is a legit thing! I would never share my personal information anyway just a name. If it is for real that is great because we need something like this! How do we find out if this is for real?

          I looked at the page, and you have the option to keep your email address private. All that is shown on the petition online is your name, no address, no phone number, etc. You choose whether or not to keep your email address off the internet, but it will show up on the petition because there has to be some way to verify the signatures. It looks ok to me. I went ahead and signed it. Just know you CAN put a different name down if you don't feel comfortable using your own.

          04/17/09 Crohn's disease almost killed me with a combo of extreme constipation from pain medications. My bowel ruptured, I almost died from peritonitis and spent several days in the ICU then more in a private room on the floor. If you have any questions about severe constipation from pain meds please don't hesitate to send me a message.

              Foks... this is an old, outdated petition (7 years or so) that links to sites that no longer exist. It is completely USELESS! Please don't promote it.
