Our Texas Chapter Creates Powerful Video to Raise Awareness of Neuropathy

July 26, 2013

“There are people in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s that attend the neuropathy support group meetings to help each other.”

The Austin, TX chapter of the Neuropathy Association—led by Nancy Herlin and Marjory Haddix—has developed a video describing the impact of neuropathy, their motivations for forming the chapter, and the work they do in the local community with the help of the patients and caregivers that attend their support group meetings to help people cope with the life-changing struggles of neuropathy.

Support Your #1 Cause: BEAT NEUROPATHY!

Nancy and Marjory are caregivers and support group leaders in our neuropathy community; for them, beating neuropathy is a very personal cause. Nancy’s 20-year old son Peter Herlin was diagnosed with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (or CIDP—an autoimmune form of neuropathy) five years ago. Marjory’s 18-year old daughter Julie Ann was also diagnosed with CIDP twelve years ago. Both Nancy and Marjory inspire all of us who want—and are working towards a better future for the more than 20,000,000 Americans devastated by a neuropathy well as the millions more who love and care for them.

Nancy notes, “It is a wonderful feeling to be able to help people living with neuropathy as well as their family members and friends to better understand neuropathy and find answers. The empathy and compassion we, as a community, have for each other’s situation translates into support for our mission to spread the word and support those in Central Texas dealing with neuropathy.”

The Neuropathy Association congratulates the Austin, TX support groups for their ongoing work to help people impacted by neuropathy in the local community!
