How would people from outside the U.S. make donations? We can't write cheques in U.S. dollars. Is there a PayPal or VISA payment option?

I have a birthday coming up and I'm thinking that instead of gifts I might ask my family members for donations to HOPE. You have been my lifeline and guiding light for the past year.

Oh Lernica, that is such a lovely thought. This site is worth it's weight in gold isn't it, and no one ever asks for anything, for all of the great work that is done on our behalf.

Yes they do have a Pay Pal account. Once you start the process where Violet mentioned it will lead you to where you need to go.
Best Wishes and I do think that is a super idea. Maybe I'll steal it next time!!
Hope your having an okay day;
Doreen

What wonderful news! This website gave me answers to questions with just a click. I am suffered with PN and vulvodynia since October 2004. The last two months I finally have some relief. Burning, stinging, and irritation still flare up almost everyday. But, it is more manageable now. I have been to "hell" and back with these conditions. I almost met our maker in November of 2009 after PN surgery and horrific pain. But, God kept me alive through it. My husband has been taken from me in May of last year. He had a fatal massive heart attack at home. I found him on the couch. He had left this world 2-3 hours earlier. Finally, it took me 6 months to start thinking that I could not have done anything to prevent this. God has been good to me and has allowed for my healing, both physically and spiritually. I have returned to church to praise God and what he has done in my life. I went to the Univ of Michigan Vulvar Disease Clinic in Ann Arbor, MI and was treated my the great Dr. Hope Haefner. If you belong to the NVA (National Vulvodynia Association), you would have heard of her. I am on a HRT treatment and using a sterioid cream. The doctors, PTs, etc., were astounded with the 360 degree turnaround I experienced in mid December. I have had some pain free days and I have enjoyed life again. I did give up hope in the past but never again. I can withstand anything the world gives me because I have the alpha and the omega on my side. I enjoy telling people about this. The doctors say its the new pain med (Nucynta), the vagifem and clobestrol creme but I know I have had a modern day miracle. God Bless Us All and my thanks to this website and everyone resonsible for it. It has given me lots of information and hope since October of 2008. Like many of you, it took four years on a journey to find out a correct diagnosis and start this journey to my recovery. Keep doing what you are doing! Hugs, Debbie
