Unaffiliated Support Groups
The MdDS Foundation is recognized in the US as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, subject to strict rules and regulations as set forth by the IRS. Several support groups have been established by individuals which do not meet these regulations and as such may not be included on this website. However, they may be found on Facebook and through most Internet search engines using keyword “MdDS.”
