Thanks to a caring member, she suggested I make donations enabled through AmEx. Now that I am a registered as an official non-profit, you can make a tax-deductible donation via this AmEx web site:

http://amex.justgive.org/giving/dona...arityId=26912&

Sorry, you have to spend another an extra 42 seconds to register with Amex to make a donation.

If members have other preferred web sites through which to donate, please email or PM with the details. In the meantime, for you credit card donors, here is the PayPal site on the (old and crusty, but still visited daily) ADR site I launched back in July of 2004: http://www.adrsupport.org/donations.html

And thanks for donating...we really need whatever you can give! I'll provide an update on what the foundation is researching & delivering soon.

Just curious do you have any ADR surgeons financially contributing to keep this website up and running?

Maybe you've disclosed this info elsewhere or at another time. I think it's a legit question just like issues previously identified re dr's affiliations/ consulting work with particular manufacturers or insurance companies etc.

No, as I explained last week, I get no donations from doctors for this site!

So far this year, I've received app. $400 in donations from spine patients from this community. Does this help you decide?

I am actively looking for tax-deductible donations from corporations -- including spine-related companies -- to fund the video project. Pass the word on to your "favorite" spine company!
