Some Success Stories: Room For Hope
One of the biggest factors in the rehabilitation
of the patient suffering from ADHESIONS seems to be
the removal of feelings of loneliness. Participation
in support groups and other forms of psychological
support are a big help. Some patients have been
prompted to lobby for more action on behalf of ADHESIONS
patients. Such an example is Jill Eckman who
recently wrote this letter
to the First Lady.
