Time To Pony Up Folks - We Pwn's Need $ To Send Nyx To The Sleep Conf

3 posts in this topic

Hey Nyx and all -

I'm in for $100. Just let me know where to send the check!

Everybody, don't you have a question that your doctor can't or won't answer? Even for those of us living on disability (including me, at the moment), is there some luxury that you can give up just once? The $5 lunch at McDonald's, or the $8 movie that you see once a month? If we all give up just a little, we are ALL going to end up getting a LOT in terms of understanding so much more about our disease.

Think of it this way - you chip in a little bit, and you have just a little bit of risk (of losing your money for nothing - which I at least am 100% sure won't happen). And you have a TREMENDOUS amount that you will gain. Whenever you've got that kind of risk:gain ratio, you've got to seize the opportunity!
