Slovak Marfan Association
Why join the Association?
Being a member of a patient organization = not being isolated
Sick patients often feel lonely. Loneliness = depression
Depressed patient = not interested in treatment, does not see the beauty of life, indifferent and lonely
Loneliness is disappearing in a group of members / patients with similar problems
The patient finds out that there are many people with similar problems who can solve the problems, can help, give the helping hand
The patient finds that life can be fully lived with the disease
The patient gains support, understanding, new relationships and friendships of those who understand him because they have similar problems.
Patient organization provides space - “Shake hands together”
Talking to someone about your problem is a human trait and a need.
Membership of any association provides social, material and health benefits.
"SHARING YOUR PAIN - IT´S HALF PAIN"
