Southeastern Michigan Chiari Support Group
Have you or a loved one just been diagnosed with Chiari? Are you or a loved one considering Chiari decompression surgery? Would you like to talk to others that have already been decompressed or whose children have already been decompressed? The Southeastern Michigan Chiari Support group is comprised of many Chiari parents and adult Chiarians who struggle with this diagnosis and the way that it has affected their families. We have a page on Facebook and meet locally once a month.
Chiari Malformation is a diagnosis that not many people have heard about but we want you to know that there are people who are going through what you are currently. We would like to welcome you to our group online and our local monthly meetings.
Our belief is: “No One Challenges Chiari Alone”
