There is a thread 'pinned' at the top of this forum called "Would you support an IBSgroup donation fund to be directed to research or group donations" where Jeffrey (the owner of the site) is asking you to vote on the suggestion that we start a fund that people can donate into and the monies raised will then be used for research into IBS. There is nowhere near enough research done into IBS particular when you consider how debilitating it can be. Surely, of all people, we should be the ones who would like to see more research for IBS? Jeffrey is simply asking you to vote if you think the fund is a good idea or not. Just because you vote to say that it is a good idea doesn't mean that you have to donate! When you think of all the money that is donated into diseases like cancer etc., surely it makes sense that we support the idea of a research fund for IBS. So come on guys click on the topic and at least vote one way or the other...................please!
