My name is Summer Canady and after being diagnosed in 2016 I began searching for information. It was this thirst for knowledge that led me to the SAA. I instantly knew I wanted to get a Support Group started for my local area. Being someone who feels like there isn’t anyone that understands, I wanted to find others that I could help.
I started blogging about how AS affects me because I know I can be a voice for many. I want to build a positive support group through education and awareness. My dream is to put some bigger scale fundraising events together, and to be a source for guidance as others struggle to understand this journey.
Some things to expect in the group are sharing personal stories, providing resources to those who do not know where to find help. Offering social media as a tool to reach those who are not capable. Learning, educating, and finding projects that support a positive role in our progression.
I look forward to meeting many warriors along the way and growing not just as a group but as a family.
