Review for APFED, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My 9 year old son was diagnosed with an eosinophil associated disease in December 2012. The only advice his GI gave us was to visit apfed.org. Their website led me to online community of other parents of children with eos diseases and I quickly made many "friends" who could relate to what we are going through and offer real-life experiences and advice. Apfed's website also offered a wealth of literature on various topics involving eosinophil associated diseases. I began volunteering for Apfed (a few hours a week from home) a couple of months ago and this has led to even more amazing connections around the country. My son & I were recently invited to participate in Apfed's lobbying day on Capitol Hill! The initial diagnosis is heartbreaking and stressful and Apfed literally saved me. The people I have met through this organization have truly saved my son's quality of life. I honestly don't know where I'd be without their knowledge and support.
