Share Your Story with Family and Friends
Mast Cell Warrior

Often times, family and friends are uncertain how to support us along the way.  We can help them by sharing information about this complicated disease, explaining how it affects us and showing them how they can be there for us.  

This Awareness Day, we encourage you to share your story on your own Facebook page.  You may be surprised at the positive comments, questions and support you'll receive by sharing a glimpse into your life with rare disease.

Below are Facebook posts from patients who posted about mast cell disease and received an outpouring of support from family and friends.  Feel free to use these as examples for your own story. Remember to add a fundraising button to your post to help MSC continue our Awareness mission.   Example 1    Example 2
