The Call-In number for questions or comments is (646) 200-0162.
Important: Beginning on February 1, 2011, all free hosts (that's us) will be limited to one, 30-minute show per day during non-primetime hours (shows can't be between 7-11 PM eastern anymore).
I am not sure if they will cut us off at 30 minutes anymore or will still let us keep talking until we're done.
To keep our shows at our usual time (7:30PM eastern) would cost a minimum of $29 a month and I don't think that this is worth it.
So...future voice chats may be during the day or on weekends.
Cushing's Help Founder, MaryO, was the first person interviewed.
"MaryO", Mary O'Connor is the founder and webmaster for Cushings-Help.com and related sites. She is also a Piano Teacher and web designer in northern Virginia. She started having Cushing's symptoms in early 1983 and finally had pituitary surgery at the NIH in November, 1987, Mary is a 25+ year survivor of Cushing's Disease.
Due to her Cushing's experiences and the lack of websites for people with Cushing's, Mary founded the Cushings-Help website in 2000 to help others who were dealing with the rigors of testing and surgery.
MaryO, as she is fondly called by the members of the support board she runs in conjunction with the website, has been instrumental in educating thousands of people about Cushing's. Through the use of her website and support boards, these same folks have been able to garner support and information invaluable to their diagnosis and treatment.
Mary is a survivor. Not only has she survived, but she has enabled so many others of us to survive, also.
She has been recognized in Forbes Magazine, many newspaper and journal articles, and is a speaker at Cushing's Awareness events. She is married to Tom and has a grown son, Michael.
