Countdown to the Convention - 1 month 5 days!! Yeee Haw!!!
With a condition so rare that only one in 3000 babies born have this
muscular disorder it's easy to comprehend how alienated anyone with
Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC) must feel. Through the hard
work of one mother's vision and an army of members, the AMC Support
Group has helped bridge the gap with the power of the internet. It is
not only the group's mission to provide and encourage a greater
understanding and awareness of this condition, but also to provide a
support system. To help those that have felt all their lives an
outcast or alone, meet others who have lived that same life, to meet
other families who have the same concerns and to provide a resource
But meeting on-line is not enough. It's hard to explain to a mom
exactly how another mom has taught her child to sit up without the
use of his arms, or how one child learned to stand. What so many
people take for granted: the ease of walking, typing, eating and
breathing those with AMC have had to struggle to adapt to this world.
Our conventions solidify that bridge and strengthen the bond of our
AMC family. Once a year we come together, charge NO admission fee,
bring professionals, doctors, physical therapists, occupational
therapists, provide workshops and invite people throughout the
country to learn, share, laugh, cry and grow.
To provide and encourage more understanding and mutual support among
anyone affected with the diagnosis of Arthrogryposis Multiplex
Congenita (AMC). To create a higher standard of AMC awareness by
means of Conventions, Meetings, and Studies.
To provide educational material to new parents, or soon-to-be parents
regarding the diagnosis of Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC).
To provide a resource of information to the medical field to include
but not limited to occupational therapists, physical therapists to
assist them in the treatment of a child or person with the diagnosis
