We have a new Donation Tracker on the message boards so that people can easily see how the donations are going and add a one-time donation from that "app". There is also the option to donate anonymously since I know some people don't like to have their names showing.  Some early donors didn't let me know if they wanted to be known or anonymous and in the course of emailing them to find out, I've been getting some nice comments back :)

Other comments are random, from email, bios and elsewhere.

 


Thanks for all your efforts and for being such an inspiration and bright light!

Same here! I don't know what I'd do without Cushings-Help!!!  

~~~

 

I'm grateful for this site because it gave me some hope of an answer.

~~~

Mary O, thank you so much for taking the time to love other's enough to have this site!

~~~

Thanks Mary O for this fabulous tool you've created here! You saved my life.

~~~

Im sure you get this all the time but thank you for this web site!! When I had lymphoma stage 4 there was all kinds of info and support and so much understanding. Cushings has been a completely different journey very little understanding from Doctors and almost 0 from general public so thankful for this site. Hope you are doing well. And again thank you.

~~~

Oh, my, Mary Kelly O'Connor has been a Godsend in my life. She's been the reason most of us are here to pay it forward. XOXO

~~~

Thank you Robin Ess and Mary Kelly O'Connor! You are angels on earth!!!

~~~

 I also am thankful to Mary O. I have never met her, but without all the wonderful work this woman has done for cushings where would we be.

Mrs. Fight commented on Day Twenty, Cushing's Awareness Challenge - Cushie Info:

So very true about it "being our only shot". After being learning I had Cushing's and then later learning all about it thanks to Cushing's Help and the support of my fellow "Cushies". My husband and I have often talked about how the doctors will have lots of patients and if they get it wrong and one of us slip through the cracks they have a new patient in the waiting room the next day. Our families are left wondering why we are no longer here.

The value of knowing about what you have enables you to understand the process, communicate more effectively, participate with knowledge, ask questions, select options for care that are right for you, helps you to explain the condition to those you love or care about and it gives you some small (very small) sense of control over your life instead of being completely overpowered by the illness (any illness).

As always thanks Mary O for giving all of us so much!

~~~

...and thanks for having such a helpful site on the net.  Specially for people like me who cannot find good answers or good medical attention regarding suspicions of having Cushing´s.  I am truly alone in this over here ( Costa Rica ) and i find this website to be my only aid trying to find out what i have and coping with my symptoms. Best wishes.

~~

we need to educate ourselves. my education on this website led to my cure. thank u MaryO for giving us this medium.

~~

Mary, you are the champion of Cushing's helpers. You saved my life!

~~~

I'm so happy for them [Corcept, makers of Korlym], for our community, for you and your boards that saved me...I'm just so overwhelmed with emotion!!

~~~

Thank you, thank you and thank you again for your support, dedication and this site. It restored my hope, helped me see I am not alone and has provided an amazing amount of knowledge. I know on any given day (no matter how bad I feel) these sites will help me.

~~~

Thank you for all you do!

~~~

I can’t say enough about the impact that – even as an outsider – I’ve seen from your work in the Cushing’s community.

~~~

If it wasn't for the boards that MaryO so wonderfully created, I would still have a tumors in my pituitary and probably not be here right now. When I went full blown Cushing's I was very sick, still am but at least now we know what we are dealing with. Big Thanks to MaryO, I truly owe my life to you.

~~~

I agree with Judy x 100! I was thinking again this morning while browsing your forums in the wee hours of the morning how I would be so lost without your website and online community. I've been a part of your website and community since at least 2000, and here I am FINALLY 18 days away from surgery. You save lives. I know that may sound cheesy, but I really, really feel that I owe you my life and that by being the warrior who went ahead of us all and put the information out there you saved so many other lives in the process as well. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your countless hours of work and for having a heart made of gold. THANK YOU!

~~~

Mary, so many of us owe our health or our family's health to you. I'm not sure you REALLY know the impact you have had on so many people. You, my lady, are a true hero & never think otherwise.

~~~

If it wasn't for MaryO's hard work in creating an online community I don't know if I'd have made it through all these years. She's a behind the scenes kind of person, she doesn't ask for much and often winds up on the periphery but despite her own health challenges she gives and gives and gives and has helped thousands of people.

~~~

I wish I could give more and more often, MaryO. I do think about you and all your hard work all the time. I will do what I can as I can. I hope you understand.

~~~

Happy Birthday Mary-O!!!!! Thank you for using your Life to help so many, I am certain I would not be on this earth if not for you and all of the work you have done to get the word out about Cushings. XO Birthday Spoons to you Dear Friend. XO

~~~

I hope you feel the love and gratefulness that so many feel when thinking of you. And most of all, I hope you take time to celebrate the amazing person you are that we celebrate having the fortune to know!!! Happy Birthday!!!!!!

~~~

Happy Birthday, Mary! I hope all the good you've done for others multiplies and returns to you. You are an inspiration and I am grateful for you :)

~~~

Happy Birthday Mary! I hope today on our day to celebrate you that you feel as loved and appreciated for all that you have been through and all that you do for us. No one has been there for me through this struggle more than you and I know that there is a very special place in Heaven with your name on it 100 yrs from now. Thank you and very very happy birthday hugs to you with love,

~~~

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE MOST INTELLIGENT WOMAN I KNOW!!!!! Thank you for all you've done for us and we certainly hope you were SPOILED ROTTEN today - as you DESERVE IT!!! XOXO Krystine & Ken.

~~~

Mary, may God bless you today and always for being such a giving and caring person! You certainly came into our lives for the better and without everything you have done and keep doing for us, we wouldn't know where we would be .. You truly save lives!! This world certainly needs more people like that!!! May you have an amazing birthday! Xoxoxo

~~~

Happy birthday MaryO. You have touched the lives of so many people, and by extension, all the people they love and that love them. You are so beloved by so many. Thank your mother for us. Happy Birthday!

~~~

 You can use my name.  We are so lucky to have found this site and I can only hope for a diagnosis soon.  Thank you for all that you do. 

~~~

I can't even express how much I appreciate the work you do.  There is no way I'd be as close to a diagnosis if it wasn't for your websites and the forum.  Who knows how many more years I'd be getting sicker and sicker without ever hearing of Dr. F if it wasn't for the forum?  Thank you so much.  A small donation hardly seems sufficient, but I hope I can help support your important work and keep these websites going - even in a small way.

Just keep me anonymous, that's just fine with me.   That's the best kind of giving. :)

~~~

You are very welcome for the donation!!! Thank you for providing this website...it is so wonderful to hear from others dealing with the same issues.

~~~

MaryO, thanks, thanks, thanks for all your efforts to maintain this site and with the upgrades that you do. Your work is amazing.

~~~

God bless and THANK YOU,

~~~

I'm happy to help with this site because it's been a godsend for me and my son.  Thanks for all the time and resources you put into it!

~~~

MaryO, thanks, thanks, thanks for all your efforts to maintain this site and with the upgrades that you do. Your work is amazing.
