Misdiagnosed: My Thirty-Year Struggle with a Debilitating Disorder I Never Had
Author Jean Sharon Abbott shares her story of dystonia

We are very excited to announce that Jean Abbott will speak to our group about her thirty-year struggle with disability and misdiagnosis. Her story has caught international attention and was featured on NBC's Today show. Hear how she coped with disability, needless surgery and countless doctor visits while maintaining a positive outlook on life. Also, find out what changed her life overnight and allowed her to go from "wheels to heels."

Jean will be available to sign her book, if you would like to order one in advance and bring it to the meeting. Her book can be found here.

This is a new meeting location for our group. See directions below.

Please RSVP your attendance to Liz Schultz: emschultz@mchsi.com

If you are interested in helping with the Twin Cities Dystonia Zoo Walk, please stay after the meeting for discussion starting at 1:00.

All are welcome. Interested friends and family are always welcome!

If you've never attended a meeting before, we welcome you into the MN dystonia community for the first time in a comfortable and supportive environment. We honor privacy and everyone is free to participate as much or as little as they wish.
