Michigan’s NF2 Support Group reaches out to people in the entire state, western Ontario, and neighboring areas. Some have been dealing with the disorder for decades, others have been diagnosed more recently. Together we represent a broad background of experiences and knowledge about treatment options, medical center capabilities, and coping strategies. Valuable information is ours from our own people who care and understand.
Captioning is provided on a large screen for all meetings. Communication via the internet, phone, and snail mail are used to keep everyone “in the loop” … especially useful for those unable to attend meetings or in need of information. There are opportunities to learn from leading medical authorities and researchers who speak at local and national meetings. We welcome patients’ families to our group.
Although we are independent of other organizations, members are encouraged to support the efforts of NF Inc., Children’s Tumor Foundation, and the Acoustic Neuroma Association. All provide important services, further research, and give us an opportunity to increase awareness of NF2.
