An online support group is now available for those who may be interested. We would love to have you join us in our Families HHelping Families circle! The FHHF is an online support group, created & supported by the American Hemochromatosis Society, [AHS] where the motto is “AHS….where we treat you like a family member.”
We hope for this to be an opportunity for people, with a common interest in Hereditary Hemochromatosis, a condition of iron overload, to come together via the web, to share information & support, & to become better educated on this topic.
We would like to provide an environment for you to learn more about HH through the experiences of others, as well as through sharing medical information & scientific news. We invite you to become an active part of our “family circle!” By sharing your own experiences with HH, you will help others to gain valuable insight into living with this condition.
Together, we can educate ourselves, our families & our communities about hereditary hemochromatosis & make a difference!
FHHF is available to members of the American Hemochromatosis Society and non members alike. However, if you are not a member, but would like to be, please become a member of AHS at: donations.html to find out how you can join today!
Membership is $25 payable to AHS.
