DVD presentations on Health related issues. Guest speakers from various health Organizations. Chat sessions: - Alternative Medicines, Physiotherapy, Chiropractors, GP's, Medications etc.
Our group is a volunteer community support group, offering support and understanding. Providing helpful information about Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). We have no cures or magic Pills, for they do not exist, however we do offer a friendly welcome, and somebody you can talk to that cares and understands.
The Frankston FMS/CFS self-help Support Group’s mission is to provide support, information and advocacy for people affected by Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue and to advance the interests and well being of people with these disorders.
Over the years we have seen many members come and go, some have remained, lending their support to the group. I would like to take this opportunity in thanking these lovely people. Hilary, Hazel, Graeme, Debbie, Elizabeth and last but not least, my wife Maree.
Please note: - As from December 2015 we will be available only as an On-line Support Group, here on this web site. We will retain our social get together each third Tuesday of the Month at Hazell’s or a predetermined venue, members will be notified.
