The IBS Tales Hope Awards are currently being presented to websites that offer positive support and encouragement to anyone suffering from a chronic medical problem. In particular, the awards recognize websites that:
- offer accurate information and resources for patients
- encourage sufferers to search for new treatments and hope
- refuse to accept inadequate medical advice or doctors who tell us to 'learn to live with it'!
The awards were created because of demand from visitors to our own website, IBS Tales. Many visitors want to recommend websites that they have found very useful when dealing with any of the medical conditions that they suffer from.
We therefore decided to set up the Hope Awards to reward websites that support people through all kinds of different illnesses and long-term medical issues.

When you are nominating a site please include the URL (web address) of the site and a brief (no more than 100 words) description of why the site is worthwhile.
