to the Pectus Deformities Support Group web site. A decade
ago we set out to share our personal experience with one of
the conditions - Pectus Excavatum, hoping to reach out to others
and promote awareness of pectus deformities. The response has
been overwhelming. We have become the most popular site on
the world wide web for people seeking information on these
conditions. Many have benefited from our community through
mutual support and information exchange.
A few years ago we set up a donation feature hoping to cover costs
associated with maintaining the site. The generosity of the
gifts have exceeded our expectations, prompting us to explore
ways that we could further benefit the community. The end result
was a decision to incorporate a nonprofit organization for
the benefit of those affected by these conditions.
