A Heartfelt Welcome to the Community
There might not be many positives experiencing GBS, CIDP or any of the variant disorders, but we can think of at least one. We have a dynamic and growing GBS/CIDP community.
We offer support to anyone interested in or dealing with GBS or CIDP.

The GBS/CIDP Foundation International strives to assist patients and their families in coping with GBS/CIDP by providing emotional support to patients and their loved ones, as well as public and professional educational programs designed to heighten awareness and improve the understanding and treatment of GBS, CIDP and variants.

The GBS/CIDP Foundation International has been and continues to be very concerned about the health care reform law (Affordable Care Act – ACA) passed in 2010. Many of its’ parts have been implemented yet many more very critical components have not.
Community Events The GBS/CIDP Foundation International is proud to host many events on a regular schedule. Everything from local chapter meetings to our Biennial International Symposium.
In a room full of GBD/CIDP survivors, the majority of the conversations you will hear pertain to patient stories. “I was intubated for 40 days and was in a coma for 28 days.” Or, “I took that medicine and it did absolutely nothing for my pain, but another one my doctor prescribed did the trick.”
