    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 see so many people with the add on of --DON'T TAKE YOUR ORGANS TO HEAVEN..HEAVEN KNOWS WE NEED THEM HERE!! Do you know something I don't? I'm not being ugly, I'm serious because I have done extensive searching to find some where I can donate my body when I pass, every place I've found say they don't except bodies of people with hep. I realize I can't donate any organs as I not only have Hep B&C but I'm on my 4th trip with cancer but I would like to find some place that would except my body for research. If you know of a place please be so kind as to let me know. I have no family or money to bury or even cremate me so it would be a blessing. Thank you for any responce.

    I UNDERSTAND SOME PLACES DO TAKE ORGANS FROM HEPPERS....BUT MUST GO TO HEPPERS...AND OF COURSE THEY WOULD BE INFORMED....ALSO I HAVE CLEARED....NOT SURE THEY WOULD TAKE MINE BECAUSE I AM ALSO OLD NOW...AND A HEPPER...SO WHO KNOWS...MY LIVER IS NOT THE BEST EITHER BUT I DO HAVE OTHER ORGANS TOO THAT HEPPERS MAY NEED...

    MY MOTTO ON MY PAGES IS NOT JUST FOR HEPPERS BUT FOR ALL PEOPLE TO THINK ABOUT DONATING...
