MEET AND GREETS

Our Meet and Greets all started with an open invite to families with CMD to a picnic in Sherwood Forest. Families were enthusiastic. Those that could come did from various locations throughout the UK. The ones that could not make it wished the event a success but were disappointed that there was not something similar a bit nearer to them. Having listened to these families we decided we needed to take Action. To create a group that was inclusive to every family, wherever they lived.

 

 

The power of that meet up made us resolve it would and should happen again. Not necessarily a picnic, but events in different areas of the country that would allow families to meet and get to know each other.

 

A closed Facebook page has been created for families with Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy amongst them to discuss, plan and share events, problems and acheivements. Open to all the family involved. Click the Blue FB icon button today and join the wider CMD family.

 

 

We hope that this action group will facilitate change and parents and children will make lifelong friends along the way.
