This organization has been very helpful to my family and I. Provided a person to talk with and answer our questions.
It's a scary thing when the doctor tells you you have "something." Internet searches can only do so much to give you information about what you can expect in the coming years. AARDA's monthly support group meetings mean the world to me. There are always handouts about the diseases and the speakers provide me insight on things I can try to do to help my symptoms. Speaking with fellow sufferers makes me feel less alone. Don't know what I would do without these folks!
I am a person who has MS, one of the many autoimmune diseases. I appreciate being able to attend the free support meetings each month held in Clinton Township. They offer educational as well as a personal view of autoimmune diseases, diagnosis, and offer a medical background by the many physicians and health care providers that attend and share their knowledge of autoimmune diseases with the group.
The AARDA is a org that helps people by giving them information about AI diseases. They are also involved in reaching the medical profession to spread info, increase awearness and help get laws passed to aid in funding and research. There are over 50 million suffers of Autoimmune diseases, the AARDA website gives lots of info and a place to talk with others who have AI problems. Six years ago when I found out I have an AI disease, the AARDA help me accept my disease and lead me to understand my disease better. I don't know what I would have done if I had not found this wonderful organization. Thank you all who work and support the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association.
