MSU group member shares their testimony

This group has been a lifeline to me in the midst of so much uncertainty. I spent months muddling through with numerous doctors, stumbling toward a diagnosis. It’s only been in connecting with this group that I’ve felt a sense of hope. These are my mentors, the people who have walked the path before me and walk with me. I can receive and give encouragement and learn so much more than my doctors can tell me. With this group I have a place where I can complain, ask questions and be understood, and know that I am not alone.
