As a newly diagnosed patient with NTM, I have found the NTMir website to be very helpful. In fact, it is the only practical information for quality of life issues on the internet! I also attended the inaugural Washington, DC, support group lunch, and I found it to be extremely affirming. We are in this together, and it was so great to be able to ask questions and see the nods in understanding! Thank you for your work to shine a light on NTM and how it changes lives.

Launch an electronic "mentoring" program, pairing newly diagnosed patients with others who have blazed the trail for the specific treatment regimens.
