I went looking for an Addison's Support Group for my son in 2017. There were none in my area. I connected with an NADF Group in Houston and began the journey to founding our Coastal Bend Adrenal Support Group here in Corpus Christi. NADF is a WEALTH of information and a terrific network for those who need it! I refer so many to their website, www.nadf.us
I can't say enough about this organization. In the scariest time of my life they were there to make me realize I wasn't alone with the scary diagnosis of adrenal insufficiency better known as Addison's Disease. They provided reading material to educate me (much more than my endocrinologist had) and never asked for any money. They restored my faith in human kindness and likely saved my life and sanity.
When my grandson was diagnosed with Addison’s, Primary Adrenal Insufficiency, we found NADF online while searching for a support group. In no time at all, we had information on Addison’s as well as info on a support group. We could finally breathe and start to figure it all out! I became a support group leader within a year.
They are a great resource for Adrenal Insufficiency patients as well as for their families. Thank you for existing!
As a member of NADF, I have been able to be informed about Addison’s disease, current research programs related to adrenal diseases, a huge support network and a newsletter. I am grateful to be a part of this nonprofit and their work has helped me to help others.
