Emotional support

We know that finding out your child has a MACS condition can be a devastating experience, leaving you feeling scared and alone. But you are not alone, we are here to support you now and throughout your journey.

My parents were told that I was blind. They wondered if I’d ever make friends or live independently. Through meeting other families, MACS told them the answer could be ‘yes’.
