I noticed that there were no groups at all on our site.  I also realized recently that I would personally benefit from chatting with other Chiarians that are local for me.  I am still looking for a NS, and interested in hearing about local providers that you may have seen.  When I searched to see who is in CA on the site, there were several.  A couple even pretty close to me! 


Join me in forming a Californian Chiarian Group so that we can share information specific to our State!  Send me a friend request if you would like an invite!!!


Thank you,

Hey everyone! I will be hosting the first ever Nor Cal CCWAA here in Sacramento this September! I would love to meet anyone in the area and hope to have your support in the walk! Also, I don't know a single person with Chiari in "real life" so I hope to meet some of you Sacramento-area people!

I live in Redding but I was in Sacramento for few years. I travel back every month as my family still lives there. I would love to meet you and your daughter. I hope to be back in Sac in the next few weeks, let me know what works best for you. I was diagnosed in 2008 but have suffered for more than 25 years.

Is there anyone up in the Sacramento valley. My daughter is looking to meet more people who have Chiari.

Comment by Megan's Mom on February 23, 2012 at 2:33pm

I am up here in Sacramento. The NS that my daughter has is a very good NS. He is very good at what he does, he helps you understand what is going on.
