    Haylen...Wonder Woman!! And A Call-To-Arms!!!!!!
    rachael67 posted:
    Hey, Gang, Haylen has accomplished what for so long was seen as all but impossible! She has finally been able to remove Sr, Kelly's name and association with our boards. No longer will we have newbies come here expecting to find him tuning in and offering solutions, suggestions,
    etc. We have battled this issue for so long, but our Haylen solved it! Thank you, Lady!!!!

    Now, onto, the call to arms... Haylen wrote:
    [br>"...our expert coordinator still has her ear to the ground for a Breast Cancer expert, onc nurse, reconstruction specialist, etc. Please let the BC members know to send us the names of anyone they think might make a great expert for their community. We'll be glad to reach out to them." [br>

    Okay, Gang!!! Here is your chance to do your part in finding a long-needed expert/experts for this board!! We all have come across many good physicians: surgeons, oncologists, radiologists, reconstruction physicians, physical therapists, etc. Seems along all those you know, there might a few YOU would like to suggest WebMD contact!!

    BUT....Just thought of a possible problem as WebMD does not like us to use the names of docs, right?! So...Until I can find out from Haylen how to proceed. work on thinking!! That will give us lots of time to ponder and go thru our lists of all the docs whose waiting rooms we've occupied! By the time I return here with the info, I imagine we will have lots to offer WebMD!!

    Stay tuned!!
    Just when the caterpillar thought her world was over, she became a butterfly! Don't give up five minutes before the miracle!!

    Rachael, Capital Idea!!!

    We could send the names of the "experts" to WebMD contact email addy and perhaps Haylen can get the info that way. Just a thought.

    Now to find a Dr or "experts" willing to give of their precious time to be on here for us. We are in desperate need.

    I know of a breast cancer advocate but not sure she would have the inklinng or time to do it. She is wonderful tho. Not sure she would qualify as an "expert" tho.

    I am so glad Haylen was able to remove said Dr from the board. It is so unfair for newbies to come here expecting an Expert to answer them. Rachael---how about you? You are our Rock and have been mine for years. LOL

    Great idea.
    He who laughs at himself--never runs out of things to laugh at!

    HA! Rachael, you crack me up. I'm printing your note and giving copies to my husband, 7 year old and 4 year old as an example of how to always express thanks to me - LOL! And, the boss lady really pulled the trigger on this so thanks to her for expert removal.

    Re: Experts - even if you don't think a health professional isn't qualified or doesn't have the time, go ahead and pass along the name/contact information. That person might not be the right fit but they might know the perfect person who will work for our awesome community.

    Let me find out the best way for members to suggest a possible expert - stay tuned!
