I see we have a lot of new folks on the message board and I want to welcome you to the site. We are the National Graves Disease Foundation/I. We are a non-profit lay person organization who try to educate the person with Graves their family and their doctors. You can write to us at 2 Tsitsi Court Brevard, NC 28712 or you can phone 704-877-5251. We will return your call collect. We are working on an 800 number but it has not came to be yet. Membership in the NGDF provides you with a quarterly newsletter, you can pick from a selected list of our 41 bulletins on Graves disease and other information as it becomes available. Please look at http://www.support-group.com for our home page and a list of support groups we have nation wide. We are trying to add more as folks want to start them in their areas. For the areas without a support group we have a CHAT room scheduled for 24 Oct 96. We look forward to “seeing ” you on the CHAT line this month. Download the mIRC files and register in the http://www.support-group.com area. Our national director Dr. Nancy Patterson will be online soon I hope. Her e-mail is working again I received a message from her last night. Please spread the word about us to anyone you know who has Graves. We are here for you and we hope you take comfort in the fact that you are not alone.
Regards, Jake George On-line Support Group Facilitator
