    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 have MS, and I'm starting a new online community!

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Kate Milliken and I've had RRMS since 2006. In 2009, I made a documentary about my journey that I put online at www.katescounterpane.com. I threw out my story in the most emotionally honest way I could and since creating it, I've had over 50,000 unique visitors view the site and still get 2-3 phone calls a week from people with MS wanting to talk about it. This, along with my own experiences, has made one thing very clear: as a community, we need a better way to connect not only by our individual experiences, but how we're feeling about them.

    For over a year I've been working on a solution and it is here: http://igg.me/p/321295/x/2190745

    This is a link to an Indiegogo campaign that gives you a full explanation of what I am doing. It would be so valuable to me if you take a look and PASS IT ON! Facebook, Twitter, your MS friends outside this forum. To be successful, I need to spread the word and inform as many people in the MS community as I can. Keep in mind, I am creating this tool for people living with MS, but also for their caregivers and supporters too because we all are affected and all have amazing stories to tell.

    Please also sign up on my landing page at signup.mycounterpane.com so you will be sure to receive the initial version when it is launched. I will be back to this forum to keep you updated and welcome any thoughts.

    My email is katescounterpane@gmail.com should you want to contact me directly.

    I'm deeply grateful.

    Kate Milliken
