Put Your Facebook Skills to Use to Help Our Friends in Sweden Gain Access to Soliris (eculizumab)

New Orleans Meet up

Yesterday, the New Orleans Meet Up wrapped up its session.  Although it was a small group, it had a nice intimate vibe.  I especially enjoyed the Friday night dinner.  My father was able to attend as my plus one since my hubby has been dealing with getting my Father in Law settled into his Long Term Acute Care facility & preparing my Mother in Law to be living on her own.  Saturday during the lunch, my parents came down with Devin and ate lunch with the group.  Devin got to meet another…
