    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 wish the best for him, and I can tell you that Childrens Hospital in St Louis is one of the best transplant centers for children in the country..He is in good hands there..I had a kidney transplant almost 8 years ago at the neighboring hospital, Barnes-Jewish. We have some wonderful hospitals here in St Louis, along with wonderful doctors. If they did not have high hopes for him, they would not have done the transplant...may he live a long, healthy and happy life!!!
