Thank you for your interest in Chelsea\''s Hope Lafora Children Research Fund.
Chelsea\''s Hope created the Family Chat Forum to allow friends and family
to interact and discuss the challenges and experiences of caring for a Lafora patient. The Forum also provides an opportunity for friends to interact and learn how to interact with their friends who have an affected child. In order to protect this environment, Chelsea\''s Hope reviews all requests to joint the Forum. Your request to create an account at http://chelseashope.org has been denied. If you believe this decision has been made in error, please register again and explain in more detail the relationship you have with a Lafora patient.
