You don’t need to face the challenges of Alpha Mannosidosis alone. There’s a supportive community out there that’s eager to provide information, compassion, and advice. When you’re feeling low (and there will be times), a host of organisations and support groups is just a few clicks away to provide support for your child and you. Patient organisations and support groups often provide both information and support from others who have been through similar diagnoses as a family.
