Contact MPS Families

On this page you will find some of our MPS families who have made themselves available as contacts in the provinces.

Talking to other parents can often be very helpful, especially for new families – especially in the early stages after the diagnosis. Information from doctors and from various publications has to be digested first, and the question is much more of interest: How can one even live with an MPS child?

Therefore communication between our members is very essential. Parents can support one another in many ways. It starts with someone listening and leads to practical advice on how to deal with that child. MPS parents have been through all of this – or they know someone who has been through it.

To make the first step towards personal contact with other families easier for you, you will find some contact addresses here. The families are sorted by provinces, but that doesn’t mean you can’t contact each of them.

According to the variety of mucopolysaccharidoses you are looking for a contact person for the special form that concerns you. The chairperson of the company can of course be contacted at any time.
