18th Annual MHE Coalition Gathering

The next MHE Coalition NY Annual Gathering will be held on Sunday, July 21, 2019 in Pine Island, NY

Join us for our annual gathering, and meet others affected by MHE. It's a fun day, and a great way to get information, support, make new friends, and most importantly, let the children know that they are not alone with this. There are other kids who have had operations, have scars, walk or run slowly, get tired, hurt, and all those other challenges they face. And together, they are all "normal" - they are kids who don't have to worry about what others might think of them, and after a day of playing, eating, talking, laughing, they will leave feeling better about themselves, with new friends that will hopefully last a lifetime.  Once again we'll be joined by representatives of Clementia Pharmaceutical.


For information, call Susan at 845-258-6058 or email mhecoalition@gmail.com
