"The first and most important benefit of Inspire is instantaneous: realizing that you are not alone with your diagnosis. No matter how remote in the world you may feel or how isolating your diagnosis, Inspire is that corner café or pub where everyone pulls up a chair to meet over shared concerns and learn something new."
Inspire was created with the belief that patients and caregivers need a safe and secure place to support and connect with one another.
We strive to be ethical and transparent, and we never forget that our community is built upon the trust of our members. We place the utmost value on this trust, and maintaining it is our highest priority.
