Since April of 1998, The J-Pouch Group website has offered information and support to those who were facing surgery to remove their colon. Using the World Wide Web allowed us to extend the network of support and information worldwide in order to reach people who otherwise might not have access to this information. We hoped that in providing education, patients and family members could make a more informed decision about surgery.

We are pleased that the J-Pouch group has grown beyond any expectations and has become a community of support, comfort and education. Currently we receive over 2,000,000 views per month. With the amount of commitment and energy conveyed by this group, we believe the J-Pouch group has the potential to do more to reach further and provide outreach to even more individuals.

Up until 2000 the site has been run entirely from my own funds.
