What is i_Authentiic?

i_Authentiic is a support forum for people who have partners battling disabilities or long term illness.

Why i_Authentiic?

I created i_authentiic because I couldn’t find any support groups for people like me - full-time working mother with three young children and a husband battling a progressive neurological condition - Spinocerebellar Ataxia - SCA7. I hope to provide a platform where people don’t feel alone or think they have to do it on their own.
