Hi and welcome to the Arachnoid Cyst support group! This is a place where those who have a cyst, or are caring for a family member, can come together to share information and provide support for each other. This is YOUR group and the activities and content will depend on what's on your minds, the questions that you'd like help with and the tips you think will be of benefit to others.
I'm starting the group because, as an EmpowHER Moderator, I have seen many of you mention how hard it has been to find 1) information and 2) other human beings with the same condition. While I do not have an arachnoid cyst, I do have a rare form of cancer (chronic myelogenous leukemia) and I know what it's like to have to search for reliable information and what it felt like the first time I actually met another person with my same condition.
I sincerely hope this group will help all you feel less alone, just as I have found the online groups for CML patients to be of great benefit to me.
Please feel free to introduce yourselves and let us know what you'd like to accomplish with this group.
