Support Groups

Support groups provide a way for individuals suffering from Mast Cell Disorders ~and their caregivers~ to communicate with each other, support each other, provide comfort and often share information that makes their daily lives better.

Find your area’s support group from the list below.  Contact them to join a group or just ask a question.

Upcoming support group meeting dates are listed here:  https://tmsforacure.org/resources/support-group-meeting/

For general questions about support groups or interest in starting/assisting one in your area, please reach out to Cheri Smith: supportgroups@tmsforacure.org

On Facebook you can visit “The Mastocytosis Society” https://www.facebook.com/groups/155824303735/  for Private support and sharing, and “The Mastocytosis Society Inc News” https://www.facebook.com/The-Mastocytosis-Society-Inc-News-934144373407985/  for Public TMS news.
