Our meetings are typically attended by 10-20 individuals with a diversity of experiences and symptoms of the disease. We have both male and female patients including children and teenagers. Our meetings usually include times of fellowship and sharing, comparing of common experiences, and presentations on specific topics of common interest to the group. Whether you are newly diagnosed, have experienced the disease for some period of time, or are a concerned caregiver; you are encouraged and welcomed to attend and participate in our meeting.
