Connecting Young Adults Impacted By Rare Or Chronic Conditions
Our Odyssey provides social and emotional support to help improve the quality of life for young adults impacted by a rare or chronic condition. Young adults with a rare or chronic disease carry many psychosocial burdens beyond the management of their disease: talking with family, friends, and romantic partners about their health condition, planning for the future (family and career), and finding responsible peer support. Our Odyssey connects young adults through in-person and online meetups about a variety of topics geared toward them. Founded by two young adults impacted by rare and chronic diseases, Our Odyssey seeks to empower young adults to overcome feelings of isolation, build their own local communities, and enrich their lives.
