Nevus Merchandise Available Now!

Goodness. It's that very crazy time of year. We had hoped to get our Nevus Merchandise Store up and running sooner, in fact, it's been built for nearly 2 weeks. Since then we have been taking crash courses in PayPal, because if it was not one thing it was another. Last night we finally got it to where you can just use your credit card, and you don't have to have a PayPal account to do so, and all the money will flow into the right account, and all the accounting documentation will wind up in the right place.  Phew!

It was like pulling teeth. Anyway, now we are smiling a big toothless grin as we announce to the world that it's open for business! Yay!

We decided to try and make it possible for folks to buy things from the store in time for Christmas, so we decided to provide expedited shipping, as we have detailed in the article you can read on our web site. The point is, now you can get all your favorite Nevus stuff for the ones you love!

Also note that you can support your favorite USA Nevus Patient Association by making a donation at the time of your purchase, which, if you do it before Monday, gets you 2nd Day Air shipping! Woo-hoo!

No thanks to PayPal, but effusive thanks to everyone at Three Rivers Promotions, Monkeytown, and Copper Cup Images for all they did to work together to make this happen.

Happy Holidays / Merry Christmas to all!

The most frustrating thing about trying to garner support for a rare disease is that the affected people are usually the only people who get how important it is, Read more...

Weekdays of Thanksgiving - Day 5 - Friday

When Nevus Outreach started, everyone who did everything were all volunteers. That’s the way of it, trying to start a grassroots patient support organization. It wasn’t until much later that we were in a position to hire staff. Volunteers accomplished a number of formidable milestones:
