HSP Newslink, the newsletter of the HSP support group in the UK, was published in September.

The saga of a man who undertook a staggering physical challenge to support his recently diagnosed grandson, and everyone with HSP, is a compelling story worth reading.

The Chairman’s Column presents a broad scope:

  • a new mission statement for the group
  • guidelines for the research grant process
  • appointment of an ambassador to raise awareness
  • cannabis based products for clinical trial – amongst other things.

Another section features members letters, then there are reports of regional branch meetings and upcoming get-togethers.
