Spring Has Sprung

Spring has Sprung – we happily see all the new growth popping up all around us.  This is a great time for pALS and families to revisit your needs and what additional support you may need. 

Monthly support groups are a great way to grow in your knowledge of what is available from SMAF and learn from others on how they maneuver around the obstacles of living with ALS. A healthy support system includes a group who can relate to your circumstances.

Other benefits of meeting with a support group:

Feeling less lonely, isolated or judged.

Reducing distress, depression, anxiety or fatigue.

Talking openly and honestly about your feelings.

Improving skills to cope with challenges.

​Caregivers, this is a great way to connect with others who share the same feelings and frustrations.  Sometimes just knowing you are not alone is a growing experience. 


Support groups at this time are via Zoom and by email invitation only.  If you do not receive the email invites and would like to give one a try, email Pam at pam@susanmastals.org.
