While having VEDS has been really scary, we’ve felt very lucky as well, to be a part of such a friendly and compassionate community. Every event we’ve been to through The VEDS Movement has been a great experience for our family. Zee, who is 6, has been able to form lasting friendships at camp. We’re happy he has friends who understand what it’s like to have health conditions and who really care about him. They keep in touch on the phone in between events. The staff at the camp and through The VEDS Movement have always treated Zee extra carefully, and we trust them to keep him safe despite his multiple medical issues. Every time we go to an event or contact The VEDS Movement, we are always touched by the compassion and friendliness. We have all gotten the opportunity to make lasting connections with and learn from the specialists, researchers, and peers.
