    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,

    FARE walk

    If you guys have one near you, I highly reccomend you go! Ours was last weekend and it was such a great day! They had bouncy houses, a dj, raffles, tons of vendors giving out samples of foods and coupons (sunbutter, wowbutter, enjoy life for examples). We really enjoyed it and will def be participating in the future!

    Wow! That sounds like a lot of fun!

    I'll have to check FARE's website better. I think there may have been one around here, but we missed it.

    Definitely check it out!! I think the best part was Nathan being able to see so many other kids that can't eat peanuts just like him.

    Nathan asks me every night if we are going to have another Peanut walk....I think it made an impact
