Dedication to Eugene Bahia:
This issue of our newsletter is dedicated to Eugene Bahia a.k.a Khoolhandz. He passed away from Synovial Sarcoma Cancer on June 19th. He was surrounded by friends and family.

He was the captain of a biking team raising money for the British Columbia Ride to Conquer Cancer. He will leave a legacy among our community for his strength and dedication.

You can help his team reach their fundraising goal by donating HERE.


Help us improve:
We are all here to help each other and we want to make sure we are doing the best we can. If you have any suggestions for new communities or groups that you would like to see please let us know by sending us a quick note to info@bensfriends.org.

Gloria E. has been a busy bee creating tons of groups in our rarediseases.bensfriends.org site. Some of the newest groups include: Laughter and Humor, Prayer and Healing Energy Requests and Pain Management. You can also submit requests to our suggestion box HERE.

Monthly Feature:
Donna Mignone has been a great help in building the Psoriatic Arthritis community. She was diagnosed with the disease in 1996. Even though she is in pain she still makes time for her family and friends. She recently found out she is going to be a grandmother in the fall. So we would like to send her a BIG CONGRATS!
