When we chose to participate in the Folding@Home project, most of us did so for reasons beyond simply earning ourselves a name for racking up tremendous amounts of PPD. Our goal is to further the scientific research of the project for the good of medical science, and to help defeat the diseases that result from protein misfolding, such as Alzheimer's, Huntingdon's, and Parkingson's diseases; ALS; CJD; and many forms of cancer.

For some contributors, however, it is not just a sense of detached idealism that motivates you to actively participate in folding; you or your loved ones are afflicted with one or more of the diseases we aim to eradicate, and you are a major backbone of the Folding@Home project.

FAH-Addict is looking for such personally-affected contributors that are willing to share their experiences, and talk about the ways in which they have been affected by these diseases, and are continued to be affected so everyday. We would like to know more about how the disease that has affected you motivated you to join the project, and what impact the Folding@Home project in general has made on your lives.

If you wish to participate, please contact KaySL if English is your primary language, or Adanorm if it is French, by clicking the relevant link. Please note that you will need to be logged into the site in order to use the private messaging function.

Thanks!
