What I want to do

I want to see a neuropathy support group in every population center in California, Nevada, and Oregon

What matters to me

I want people with neuropathy to get information about neuropathy that is so scarce to so many.

What inspires me

Seeing the joy in the face of a person who is hearing someone describe what they are feeling because the speaker knows the same experience.

THE PACIFIC CHAPTER OF THE NEUROPATHY ASSOCIATION
June 25, 2011

This organization started with one support group in 1998 and today has 37 active groups and 15 where we have members and have held meetings but leadership has not been found to have an active group of people meeting.

Recently, we have changed our corporate name to The Pacific Chapter of The Neuropathy Association. This means we can go beyond Northern California and establish support groups in Southern California where there are four groups currently. We have a group in Reno-Sparks but will be free to develop groups in other areas as well. Oregon is also going to join with us.

The need is great. We estimate that approximately 3 million people in California have some form of neuropathy. The chief problem that impedes growth is finding people willing and able to lead a group. We recommend a team of at least two or three to serve as leaders.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The neuropathy I have is by heredity. I could have been diagnosed in early childhood but was not. Now, that I have learned so much about neuropathy, I can look back and understand why I couldn't do some things others could. I reatly value the help this organization has given me and many others.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find people willing to be leaders, give them training, and support them in many ways as their group develops.

MY ROLE:
Board Member & I have helped to develop most of our support groups.
