Abstract

A nonprofit organization formed in 1983, the Simon Foundation for Continence is an educational organization dedicated to providing assistance and support to those suffering from urinary incontinence and their families. In addition, the Foundation promotes public awareness, reviews relevant legislation, and encourages the medical profession's interest in this condition. The Foundation attempts to help the 33 million Americans who suffer from incontinence by organizing self-help groups and distributing up-to-date information. Funds are raised by donations and membership fees. The Simon Foundation maintains three additional websites: http://www.innovatingforcontinence.org; www.managinglifewithincontinence.org; and www.continencecentral.org.
