Terrific article and incredible mission.
I couldn't have said it better, "...support, information, and friendship changed their relationship with their disease." I personally feel such a huge sense of comfort just knowing that I am not alone.
I go through phases of wanting to speak up and talk about my illness, and then not wanting anything to do with it. I like that I can use Ben's Friends is there for me no matter how I may be feeling that day. The support is there if you need it, but you can use the site as a tool and make it your own.
Thank you for putting your heart and soul into this site. You are truly changing lives.
