Patient Support Groups

There are various patient support groups and blogs available online.  Each has something different to offer and can help with ideas about treatment and lifestyle.  We encourage patients to talk with doctors in their area to form their own support groups.  Building your own support group can provide you with a feeling of empowerment and the ability to make a difference among those also suffering from your disease.
