Check out the support group meetings happening this month!

Sarah Nicholl and Marni Halter from the Toronto Anaphylaxis Education Group

Support groups provide a warm, caring environment for you to share your concerns. You’ll get help in dealing with the day-to-day stress of being at risk for anaphylaxis, or having a child who is at risk. Plus, you will keep updated on any new developments. It can be helpful to talk with others who understand what you’re going through.

Below you will find the support group meetings happening this month. You can also read about Sarah Nicholl, the co-leader of the Toronto Anaphylaxis Education Group, and learn about her journey.
