Who are we,
why are we here?
We are Peyronies Disease
patients just like you or your partner. In truth the term patient
may be somewhat misleading since many of us are not currently under the
care of any doctor. It all started because we saw a need for a
forum unlike any that existed. We wanted a forum that was not
heavily moderated and where member posts were never altered or censored
because of opinion on any Peyronies Disease related topic, a forum where
your opinion or question is not measured against some preconceived
standard of the "correct" comment. We also wanted a forum where we
could communicate openly in a trusted environment without being harassed
by impostors trying to disrupt our conversation. We wanted a forum
that was not hijacked by religious zealots or people whose priority it
was to spread their political agenda. We wanted a forum that was
not run by someone trying to sell "cures or spamming us with pop-up ads.
We saw a neglected niche' an we knew that,
If we built it, you would come!
We are happy to report that you
did come at an astounding rate to build a forum from the ground up that
surpassed all of our expectations. We now have the largest most
active Peyronie's Disease forum on the internet.
With that base, and continuing
growth, we have evolved into an organization that accepts the
responsibility of support, education, public awareness, as well as
advocacy with other organizations and industries. After much
thought and discussion, we changed our name from "Peyronie's Disease
Patient Discussion Forum" to "Peyronie's Disease Society" to
reflect this expanded role. Our forum is still our base because it
is about you. Your forum at Peyronies Disease Society is your
voice to us, to each other, and to those we hope to impact. You
are our foundation and we pledge never to forget that basic fact.
Welcome, you are among those
that understand, want to help, and we hope you feel the same.
