Adults with aHUS - UNITE !

Are you an adult aHUS patient? 

     You are not alone!  There's been a noticeable uptick in the number of adults joining our online aHUS community...and we're happy you're found us.  One of the most frustrating things about any rare disease is the lack of local support groups, and it certainly is wearing to repeatedly answer the inevitable question, "What exactly is atypical HUS, anyway?".   It's a tough balancing act for all who deal with this disease. …
