One of RJLF’s Fellows recently received a chronic health diagnosis - a diagnosis that she can manage but that has scared her nonetheless. In trying to find her a support group, someone to talk to about the changes she has to make and the daunting nature of “lifelong”, we found . . . nothing. The local association does not hold or know of any support groups, and Googling is overwhelming, unconfirmed and ultimately unhelpful.
We are fortunate enough at RJLF to have a variety of Board Members, one of whom is a nurse and offered to speak with the Fellow. However, we know that this is not an isolated incident. Our Fellows will frequently face challenges that require previously unknown/untapped resources. That’s where you come in.
We want to know what is available in Bucks and Montgomery Counties and the surrounding areas. We want to be able to point our Fellows in the right direction when they need support. If you know of a resource that might be helpful now or in the future, please reach out, so that we can add it to our list.
