Toronto Support Group Meeting, 2-4pm, Sunday, Dec 3, 2017
Northern District Library, Rm 224, 40 Orchard View Blvd (near Yonge and Eglington)
Arrive any time after 1:30 (note: the library doesn’t open until 1:30 and we don’t want anyone waiting in the cold)
This meeting will be a potluck lunch. We don’t have kitchen facilities so don’t bring anything that needs to be heated. Bring your own plate if you’d like to be environmentally friendly, but I’ll bring some paper ones for anyone who forgets. I will provide tea and coffee and juice.
Bring stories and information to share. This will be a very informal gathering. Family, friends and supporters are most welcome. Come and share your experiences with GBS, CIDP, or MMN and variants. Learn from what others have been through and share tips and ideas.
Please email me if you have any questions. Looking forward to seeing you soon.
Please RSVP to Jane:
