Review for International Essential Tremor Foundation, Overland Park, KS, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am the most fortunate of ET patients, because at the time I was diagnosed with essential tremor, I was given material that introduced me to the IETF. I joined the foundation and from their literature I learned many facts of essential tremor that I had not known before. The most important fact, in my case, was to not be ashamed of my tremors. Without the embarrassment of my tremors, I was able to gain self-confidence and consequently was able to educate my family, friends, and strangers with presentations on essential tremor. The IETF has been the most valuable resource in providing guidance, written material for patients, doctors, and the public, and items such as pens and bookmarks to hand out at health fairs as well as brochures. The IETF has never let me down when I have requested an item or a notice to be sent out to members of a planned event or meeting. To me, it is the GREATEST of non-profits.
