The Family Counselling and Assistance Program is designed to fund counselling on a short-term basis for patients and families coping with a rare disease. The lack of emotional counselling available to families is universally identified as the single most important element missing that could support the family dynamics so critical to the health of the affected child.
This pilot program will allow a limited number of qualified Canadian families to secure counselling in their community. Funding for this program was secured through a partnership with The Canadian Tay Sachs and Related Disorders Organization as well as private donors.
To apply for this program you need to be a member of our online community as well as join your local RDF P2P chapter. You will find our application form in the members section of the community page. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
