We are there for families when they are given the news that a loved one has been diagnosed with this lifetime disorder.

We are there for families when they need a shoulder to lean on.

We are there for families when they need someone to simply listen. 

We are there for families when they need advice - when they need to draw upon the experiences of other families who have gone through what they are presently experiencing - when they need the reassurance that yes, things will get better - that there is hope.
