    Fantastic news. Such a great project. And the ppl behind it listen to patients, understand the disease, are determined to help patients, and share their data (complete opposite of PACE authors). Could really turn things around for us. When I got sick in 2008 this was the sort of thing I wished we had but we didn't. Now we do. Important to promote their work and support in all ways we can.

    Hopefully this is just the beginning of the cashflow. They will need a lot more.

    $5m per year is a lot. Hopefully the pilot data they get financed by donations will be juicy enough for a NIH grant application.
