hey all -
coming out of lurking mode to forward on this website i'm using for a friend
who was in a scooter accident a couple months ago.
it has a private forum and links for donations, and announcements about
benefits (although this is not to discourage anyone from posting here!!) --
and the best yet, tools to help keep everyone informed about the status of
the loved one. no ads, no spamming/e-mail selling.
hope this can help get the word out even more...
my thoughts go out to laura!!
here's the link:
