    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,

    Hey, is Candi on the list? If not, she is my write-in for Health Heroes. She does so much for all of us. You don't have to be international or nationally known to be a hero.

    Thanks for your vote, Angie. But, it does say 'Those celebrities who have been featured on the cover of WebMD Magazine'. I don't think I have ever been featured in their publication. But, you know what? Shortly after I joined Face Book Groups, another Lady suggested I should be listed as a 'Hero' also. It makes my Day Knowing I have reached one more person w/ Epilepsy & given them the advice/Info they need. That is Truly the Best feeling & I don't need any Awards/recognition for That! I want to Award That Person for taking heed of whatever I had to say.

    Lots of Love & Hugs! I hope you are having a Great Day/Week. Especially, now that School is back in session.

    Love Candi

    Ur welcome Candi,

    Until you have been featured in the magazine, you will be our UNSUNG HERO.

    Yea, school starts in a few weeks. I dropped by the school earlier this week. I told the principal that she can count on me Mon-Thurs. I want to keep Friday open for doc appts, weekly errands, or a day simply for me.

    See you on the other posts.

    Love you,
