It's that time again!!! In less then 4 months we will be hosting our
2nd Annual AMC Convention in Texas!!!
This event is free for all of our families to attend, however we are
asking each of our attendees to help us raise money
to support the costs it takes to put together this wonderful event.
If you, your family or friends can help in anyway - we would
appreciate it greatly!!!!! No donation can be too small!
AMCSupport Inc. now has AMC Awareness Wristbands available for
purchase at http://www.amcsupport.org
The wristbands are 100% silicone and are available in adult & kid
sizes (pink or blue).
Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita & amcsupport.org are printed on
the wristband and they cost $5.
Last year we were able to provide a family new to AMC with a copy of
the Arthrogryposis: A Text Atlas Book thanks to a gracious donation
from one of the yahoo members.
If you are done with your book ~ we would love to have another one
to give to an AMC family in Texas!!! Don't let your book just
collect dust on the shelf!!! Donate it to another AMC family!!!
