Many members have worked hard to establish April 8 (Dr. Harvey Cushing's Birthday) as Cushing's Awareness Day. This area includes several threads such as: about the proclamation, itself; what you can do to promote that day; list of people to contact before the 8th; and other helpful info.
We all need a break every now and then from talking about testing, symptoms and surgery. We can use this area to post humor, funny stories, recipes, just chatter...anything that will take our minds of medical troubles and lighten our days
