For Family & Friends

your support matters.

Your support really matters, and you can provide a valuable support network by following a few simple guidelines. In a recent study comparing parents of children with a variety of disorders and disabilities, the parents of children with Prader-Willi syndrome reported the highest levels of stress in any participating group. The same study found that parents of children with PWS listed other family members and friends as their main source of support. Do not underestimate how important your support is. Extended family and friends of people with Prader-Willi syndrome are in the unique position to have an immediate, positive impact on their life and on the lives of their family.
