Patients Like Me Are Signing Up and Making News

I first wrote about Patients Like Me in early September when Garry found it. There were more than 1100 MSers already signed up. It has been less than six weeks and now there are 1658 MSer members.

Patients Like Me was named as one of 15 companies that will change the world by Business 2.0 and CNN.com. Not only is this site valuable as a social network for patients, but it is a valuable source for medical researchers. Sounds as if it might be worth checking out, don't you think?

i just looked at it! wow! so much information. this looks really good. they don't use this information to market anything do they? that would be the only caution i would have about joining.
