Review for APFED, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

APFED’s mission is to embrace, support, and improve the lives of patients and families affected by eosinophil-associated diseases. It accomplishes this by focusing on advocacy, research, support of families, and education and awareness.
My son was diagnosed with EoE in 1994, long before this patient advocacy group was created to help deal with this disease. I have volunteered for APFED for many years and joined the board recently in part to thank this organization for all of the work they do to help families like mine deal with this rare condition.

I hope that every family that is dealing with one of these eosinophil-associated diseases will find APFED and take advantage of all of the resources they have to offer, including the annual conference. Even though my son had already been living with EoE for many years when I attended my first EOS Connection conference, it and APFED changed our lives.
