Cure CMD is here to support you and your family during the COVID-19 pandemic. Resources can be found on the Cure CMD website at curecmd.org/covid19-resources. Be sure to check for updates to this website during this constantly evolving situation.
We encourage individuals with CMD to have a back-up plan in place if a caregiver should test positive for COVID-19 and need to self isolate. Also, you should review your sick plan as this virus will have a similar effect as other respiratory illnesses.
If you or your loved ones have been exposed to COVID19 and are experiencing symptoms, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have expert clinicians standing by to assist with guidance and recommendations for your local care team.
The CMD support community can also provide a source of strength and encouragement while we endure this period of social distancing and isolation. Find a full list of groups and how to join them here.
Also, Cure CMD has partnered with Living in the Light and other organizations to create the I Stay Home For Rare initiative. This initiative strives to raise awareness and provide disaster relief funding for those affected by rare diseases in this time of heightened need.
