Kris I can agree with that she does seem a little biased based on what I have heard but hopefully this will open up her eyes a little Ok I am thinking the "Oprah's Angel network" message board then under the Discussion "Making a difference" since that seems to be the most approaiate out of the available choices. I started a topic so everyone can reply with their stories and feelings so that it can be showcased, let me know asap if anyone wants to do it different, I did check and you do have to register in order to be able to post its free and if it gets our voices heard it is worth the time, lets storm the boards so to speak I just got done registering and posting heres the link Our starting post is titled "Our Angels, Our Stories, What we want to say" under my user name mommyofsebanna_sebastian
http://boards.oprah.com/WebX13@177.7hDKcI0ofdi.106198@.ef256ae/2290
it should still be at the top of the page so lets post away. I did get some women from the MISS foundation togther also who are going to be joining usi n posting!!!! Hugs. OK COULD not get the the link to post, Laura someone if I can send it to you maybe you can figure out why its not wanting to work everything is ready though.

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

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.

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.
