Private support group
For adult patients and the parents of patients under the age of 18 we maintain a private Facebook group. This group was created as a safe place where patients and parents can share experiences about living with GLA and GSD. This group and the posts made here will not show up in searches and no one who is not an approved member will know who is in the group or be able to see anything posted here. Membership is by invitation only. If you are interested in joining the group, send a request to email@example.com and we will share with you the invitation process.
Friends & Family Group
The Lymphangiomatosis & Gorham’s Disease Friends & Family Group was created as a place where people can share their experiences related to caring for someone who is living with GLA/GSD. Here we hope family members and close friends of patients will find a place where they are comfortable sharing their experiences in a supportive environment with a group of people who are dealing with the same concerns. Access to this group is through the (parent) of the patient or send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
