Hey everybody, it has been a Hot summer… But I’ve got some Cool news for you.  Our next support group meeting!    We will have signs out too, so you can’t miss it.   I know the meeting is close to Christmas, however I also know that YOU  are my family, and who better to spend time with during the Holidays.  Light snacks will be provided as well.

I also know we have some dynamite plans.  It is very very important that you bring your caretakers. We will have 2 special  guests. David Bolden will share his experiences with the caretakers, and I will address the patients.  A special guest who also has Mastocytosis and will also be a part of our support group, will speak for a few minutes on the importance of massage therapy  (NC licensed with 20 years experience) and has volunteered to give us a free (few minute) chair massage.

I want all of you to know something, you are my family, you are my support, and I am very fortunate and blessed to lead this support group.  I want to remind you and your caretakers, you may bring more than one person!!  PLEASE DO NOT WEAR ANY TYPE OF PERFUME OR LOTION WITH A SMELL AS SOME OF US WILL GO INTO ANAPHYLAXIS.

I will send a reminder next month. Please plan to come and please mark your calendars. Let me know if you think you will be able to attend.  Thanks,  Love you all,

Emily Bolden
