What is BensFriends.org?

In 2007 Ben Muñoz suffered a rare form of stroke caused by an
AVM. He was unable to find the support he needed during the most
difficult time, so he created an online support community AvmSurvivors.org AVMSurvivors.org to connect with others like him. AVMSurvivors.org led to the founding of BensFriends.org, driven to provide patient-to-patient
support communities for people living with rare diseases.

BensFriends.org is a network of patient
communities for people living with rare diseases. Launched in
November 2007, BensFriends.org provides valuable patient support by
creating and running compassionate, responsive communities.
BensFriends.org maintains dozens of patient communities and has
changed thousands of lives.
