From the Executive Director

Dear Friends,
As concern about the Zika virus and its link to Guillain-Barré syndrome mounts,
GBS|CIDP Foundation International has been contacted by the White House and some
of the most prominent news media nationwide—all searching for answers that few of
us have.
What that tells us is that our reputation, as “THE” go-to organization for Guillain-Barré
syndrome, CIDP and variants exceeds expectation. What a pleasure it is to know that
we’ve earned the respect of patients, caregivers, families, and the medical community
to become a trusted source for research, information, love and care.
In this issue of The Communicator, you will find an update about
Zika, and several patient stories that will inspire you regardless of
where you are on your journey.
As the holiday season approaches, I encourage you to stay positive
and, difficult as it may seem, to be thankful for the opportunity to walk
this journey. Please know that we are here to support you in whatever
way possible… you are not alone!
My Best,
Lisa Butler

Executive Director
