We’ve Won the HOPE Award

IBS Tales Hope Award

Guess what? We’re so excited that we’ve recently won the HOPE award for both Rest Ministries’ web site and the web site of National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week. This is an award given by IBS Tales, a site for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) sufferers where they can tell their stories and read about the experiences of others.

The IBS Tales Hope Awards 2007 are currently being presented to websites that offer positive support and encouragement to anyone suffering from a chronic medical problem. In particular, the awards recognise websites that:

  • offer accurate information and resources for patients
  • encourage sufferers to search for new treatments and hope
  • refuse to accept inadequate medical advice or doctors who tell us to "learn to live with it"!

Their web site states, "The awards were created because of demand from visitors to our own website, IBS Tales. Many visitors want to recommend websites that they have found very useful when dealing with any of the medical conditions that they suffer from. We therefore decided to set up the Hope Awards to reward websites that support people through all kinds of different illnesses and long-term medical issues."

Many thanks to the people at IBS!
