AFE Foundation Support Groups

The AFE Foundation has created several online support groups on Facebook for those affected in different ways by AFE. Our groups are moderated and facilitated by trained admins. They are closed groups, meaning members’ posts are only visible to the other members of the group, and not to the public.

Grieving Families

For family members who have lost a loved one to AFE. This group provides a forum for sharing in grief, seeking comfort, and asking questions of others in similar circumstances. Our hope is that this group will prove helpful in the days, weeks, months and years following your loss.
