CONTRIBUTE TO THE HFSA
Although there are no fees or dues involved in membership in the HFSA, we do incur expenses for such items as Internet server charges, computer software, printing, mailing, etc. To cover these expenses, and to fund our future ability to assist HFS sufferers, we are in need of voluntary contributions from our members.
All contributions, regardless of amount, are appreciated.
