Hurricane Katrina Resources & Relief
Phone calls are now coming in from IC patients who need help finding new urologists, health care and support. Today is a day that I'm proud to be an IC patient because these support groups are doing a great job trying to find patients in need, and to help them, particularly Cindy Sinclair & ICU Texas!!!
If you are an IC patient who was evacuated or know one who has been, you can contact the groups below.
- IC patients evacuated to Lake Charles, LA should contact Jacqui Daigle at: 337-588-4586.
- IC patients evacuated to SE Texas (Houston, etc.) should contact Novetta Tudor (713-636-2401) or Cindy Sinclair (419-948-3710)
- IC patients evacuated to Dallas should contact Beth Ann McKinney (972-964-5884)
- IC patients Evacuated to San Antonio should e-mail Micki Autry at email@example.com
Please support the American Red Cross and other organizations that are trying to help.

I to would like to add if they are any IC patient that ended up in the Shreveport/Bossier City area or any of the small towns near it (Mansfield, Coushatta, etc) I also have a great Urologist. He is in private practice and also is at the charity hospital Louisiana State Univeristy Medical Center in Shreveport one day of the week. Just contact me and I can give his name out. There are 2 in the area that have knowledge in IC.

That is wonderful. They are bring planes full to CO everyday. To help get jobs, medical, and so forth. There are several wonderful urologist in the Denver area, and surrounding suburbs. For the moment the people are at Lawry Air Force Base, which was closed awhile back and is now housing these people.

I believe the news said they was 2000 come into the
Greenville area today, and may be bring over some more, but that was at the eleven o clock news last night.
If any of them has IC and needs to find a great doctor over here they can feel free to email me or call me. I will point them in the right direction for help.
hugs and prayers to all

Hey, there. I just saw that you have the resources posted on the homepage and my user name is listed as Stacey70 instead of Stacey79. I don't know if that would make it harder for people to find me to message me, but just thought I'd mention it in case.
Again, makes me proud of our IC community. You all have such wonderful, big hearts! :)
