Massachusetts Support Groups and Charities


EDS New England/Massachusetts Support Group meets quarterly (every three months) on Sundays for a minimum of three hours at Children’s Hospital Boston-Waltham, 9 Hope Avenue, Waltham, Massachusetts, in the Deveber Conference Room. Parking is free.

Our group is comprised of individuals and families with young children, teens, young adults and parents who are affected by Ehlers-Danlos or a related connective tissue disorder (either personally or as a parent of an affected child). We are committed to supporting one another in every facet of our work, whether it be through our quarterly support meetings/presentations, interim awareness meetings/sessions, ongoing awareness initiatives such as our “EDS Physician Awareness Committee”, or through a variety of online communications, over the phone discussions or simply by texting one another. Feel free to contact Jon Rodis at for more information on the group or if you would like to join.

Central MA EDS Support Group

Our group consists of a wide range of ages, from young children to adults. We meet in Millbury, MA (currently this may change) once a month on average for about 2 hours. Besides our monthly meetings, we have an active support group on Facebook, where members can share stories, questions, “hacks”, etc, and can receive support for these posts. Information regarding EDS and its co-morbidities are shared on the Facebook group as well. Please feel free to contact Niki Dupuis or Erica Crosby at for more information regarding meetings and joining our group!
