    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,

    I hope WebMd keeps this post. the 1993 Federal Medical Leave Act of 1993 does not provide for loss of a child. In mid January, Kelly Farley and Barry Kluger started a petition to change this act. the Farley Kluger amendment works to change this.Please join the 6400 letters that have already been sent. It is a NON partisan bill. Loss of a child knows no income, culture, race or political affiliation. To date, we have met with 8 members of Congress and are working with a DC firm to write the bill, pro bono. In memory of those we lost, we thank you..and WebMD.
