Karyn,
Thanks for posting this petition - I just signed up and it looks like 531 out of 1000 (goal) have signed up.

2007-08 pelvic muscles spasms (per colon-rectal dr.) treated by ElectroGalvanicStimulis(EGS). 6/27/10 sat too long on a hard chair- spasms, EGS not work Botox help, spine pain dr cortisone shots in coccyx help, still pain, PT found PNE & sent me to Dr Marvel nerve blocks & MRN, TG left surgery 5/9/11. I have chronic bunion pain started/surgery at age 21. TG gave me back enough sitting to keep my job and join in some social activities. I wish the best to everyone!

Hi Janet,

You're welcome! And THANK YOU!!! I realize a lot of folks are signing via FB, but I was getting a bit concerned as there have been over 50 views since I posted, but no responses.
Hoping people are just signing without responding.

Best regards,
Karyn

Karyn,
I am with you! I can usually view stuff from my nook but things like signing the petition I wait until I am on the regular computer and wondered myself why no responses here.
