Hi Folks: I have tried to call WPI a number of times, and e-mailed over the past few months and can never get through to anyone or have my calls returned. Has anyone else had better luck? I know that they are inundated and so I've been very patient, but I am trying to reach them for a couple of reasons: 1) to make sure my earlier donations were grouped together so I became a "Friend" and does anyone know if they've yet sent out a newsletter or e-mail to Friends of WPI? 2) I have another donation question I need to talk with them about. 3) I offered to donate bone, bone marrow, and muscle tissue samples but have had no response 4) I signed up very early on for their patient registry. Has anyone been contacted yet to be included in any research testing? 5) I also ordered a test kit in early December which hasn't shown up (that's less important at the moment) Just curious if there is a way to call and get a live person! And if any Friend mailings have gone out yet or if the patient registry information has started to be tapped yet for research trials. ~FernRhizome Also, while I am at it, does anyone know how to delete an old thread on this forum once it's outdated?
