Review for VHL Alliance, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The VHL 800 # was my first phone call on January 16th, 2006. This was the day that my son was the first ever in our family to be diagnosed with VHL. The only doctor that really knew what VHL was that first day was the neurosurgeon. I called to get some answers and find out about the disease and just to talk to someone.

I'm proud to be a volunteer for this organization
