    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    I put the post up in the DS Football lovers group for the NFL to turn purple for the month of November. Here is Epland is going get turned on it ear. The founder of the group & a friend of mine saw this post. Turns out her son works in the Bridgestone Tire company. A major sponsor of the NFL. He is a Sales Manager for the corprate offices in Nashville, Tennessee. He is well liked by the higher ups all the way to the CEO. She also put in that it is Important to Momma. This was the best Idea I ever had.

    This was just to good to keep to myself. I will keep you posted on what happens as I find out about it. My friend does not have Epilepsy but she said this is a cause she will gladly support. When I saw her post I was literally flooded with emotion.

    I put a post up on FB about it. We can always start one to go to them places. HMMMM (as a lightbulb turns on over my head) Actually that don't sound like a bad idea.

    You got the Idea! There is already petitions started for Google & Hockey. Red Wing Stars Hockey Team is being petitioned. Ain't seen no Nascar, though. Go with That!

    Love Candi
