East Atlanta Support Group

Hi! I am Deanna I was diagnosed as a sophomore college athlete. I am fighting with grace and gratefulness! I began a support group this year for the East Atlanta region for MS Fighters and their family in Snellville, GA! I'd love to meet you there!

Hello! There a some foundations such as MS Focus and MS Society who have a search option for groups on their sites. Here in Atlanta, there's two major MS facilities that host monthly meetings but they are a little further than I'd like to drive to do I created my own! I hope this helps!

Hi, deannabg83. I am sorry that you were dealing with MS so young. I had symptoms in my sophomore year in college but was diagnosed after birth of first son. I think that is wonderful that you started a support group in your town. Yes. If it wasn’t for God’s Grace I couldn’t carry on. I have times where my MS has given or placed me grateful opportunities or experiences. But it a constant thing we must deal with. I am grateful that I don’t have a worse version of this disease. Well you stay cool and have the best day possible.
