    support in blackpool

    Hi im new to this forum, i am a carer for my mum who has bulbar als , and i wondered if there is any support groups in the blackpool area or anyone living around here, if there is no group, i have looked but i cant find one, then maybe if there are people in this area we could start one up, my mum is newly diagnosed so things are a bit overwhelming at present and support is greatly needed as im sure everyone else feels the same. love jo xx

    Hi there murrjo1,
    I live very close to Blackpool & I have been going to the support group in Preston that Kevin mentioned, it’s really good & they are a friendly bunch of people. However, there is a “drop in “ type meeting which is going to be held on 1st March at Blackpool Cricket Club, I think it’s 2 until 4pm. Apparently, they want us to say what we would like to get out of the meetings!
    I feel sure there will be several MND sufferers who will welcome a support group in this area.
    Please PM me if you think I can help. Maeve
