Texas Children's Liver Center's support group is a great way to meet other parents who have children with liver disease. We provide mutual support and share resources related to raising children who are especially special.
You can get to know parents whose children have the same condition as yours, live in the same part of town, or have a child the same age. Parents network through phone, e-mail and monthly meetings. These meetings provide a forum to solve problems, complain and laugh with other people who "get it." Activities are open to families regardless of where their child is treated.
Occasional guest speakers cover topics such as developments in research, helping your child through the school system and maintaining normal family life. English-Spanish translators attend each meeting.
