I can tell you it was extremely worthwhile. She and I have been doing essentially the same interventions with MND patients, but she had it organized and structured in a highly beneficial way.

It is rare to find someone with such an understanding of the needs of these patients and I expect to maintain an ongoing relationship with her. ”
