Please do not worry about offending us at all....you guys are just great and we love and appreciate all you do. Just the challenges of trying to get all our volunteers moving in the right direction. It is totally fine for you to mention our name in a personal email from yourself to whomever--just if you are going to say you represent us--then check it through Eleni first. Thanks!!!

You know I care alot about you, Lucy. That's why I wanted to make sure you weren't getting too upset. You've been through enough already. I do know what you mean about not feeling like you're doing enough. But you are doing ALOT! You've been doing great, Lucy. Keep up the good work!!

Anne, sorry about that next time I will keep that in my mind I was very extremely careful not to bring the pre-eclampsia foundations name into it at all, you can read what I posted to be sure. Thanks for the headsup.

You ladies are just wonderful. Thanks for all the enthusiasm. I wanted to let you know that the Preeclampsia Foundation heads already have a very good connection with Oprah producers and we know that they have discussed doing a story like this. Feel free to post your stories and encourage their interest but be careful about saying that the Preeclampsia Foundation is pushing this agenda as we are already attacking this on one level and have had some good feedback from them. We would hate to have them get annoyed with us and see us as nagging when we are already in discussion.

Hopefully that makes sense. In the future--please pass these kinds of ideas by Eleni Tsigas, our Director of Communication (eleni@preeclampsia.org) before initiating them. She will let you know if we already have that road covered and save you from recreating the wheel.

Take care ladies and again--many thanks for your incredible energy and support.

Ok, it didnt work for me either, so go to http://boards.oprah.com there is a link on the top that says Login or join in, click on that and register, after that go click on oprahs angel network. Next click on Making a Difference, next scroll all the way down and click on Newest Messages and then you should see Lucy and my posts at the bottom. Hope that helps
