North Haven, CT: MS Support Group @ Amici's Tavern
Jan 16 @ 11:30 am

Come join our group where we have lunch as we discuss current medications, treatment, doctors, tests, and sometimes we gripe about the world of MS seen through our eyes. Each one of us are at different stages of MS, however, we support and love each group member. We laugh, cry, and yell at this disease that unites us all.
