In January, 2014 my grandson was diagnosed with Addison’s Disease. I found the NADF website. I was put in touch with other Texas support group leaders and realized Central Texas needed one too.
I have been leading the support group for seven years! While I had doubts about my ability to lead a support group, I quickly learned that getting the people together was the most important thing I could do.
I have been truly and thoroughly blessed to have met so many wonderful people and see how they have helped themselves and helped each other. A huge blessing in my life was getting tremendous support and encouragement from Melanie Wong, Lori Engler, and Vanessa O'Rourke.
