|Description||Online Patient Support Communities|
BensFriends.org is a network of safe and supportive patient communities for anyone affected by a rare disease.
In 2006, Ben Munoz suffered a life-threatening brain hemorrhage. He created an online support community so that he could connect with other patients. The support he received, and later, gave within that community led to the founding of Ben’s Friends, a network of patient communities dedicated to providing support for patients of rare diseases like himself.
