A Great New Resource: CureTogether

July 23, 2008

I have gotten a good deal of feedback (all positive) about our guest bloggers on TBC. My only repeat-guest-blogger (at this time anyhow), Alexandra Carmichael, has been instrumental in the creation of the new site Cure Together. I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak at it last month and am excited that I’m now able to write about it to you.

Cure Together
is self-described as “a place where patients and researchers work together, doing open source research to find cures.”

I can say many things about this site, but I’m going to be brief to allow you to mosey on over there and check it out yourself. This site is sorely needed. Too often there is a disconnect between the researchers and the people affected by the research. On Cure Together, as a patient, you can track your health, connect with other people that have your condition, and not only participate in research, but help fund it as well. This is just a brilliant platform! Now when we have the opportunity to donate, we can donate directly to the research affecting our lives.

Currently Cure Together focuses on vulvodynia,endometriosis and migraines–all painful, time consuming, and emotionally difficult chronic conditions.

So stop reading this and click over there today. Sign up and get involved! The only way we can hope to achieve progress is to make that progress ourselves.
