Representatives from the support group, which has more than 300 members, are going to the Statehouse for an awareness event on Wednesday at 2 p.m. The public is invited.

“We’re just going to go and meet and thank the staff,” Cleaveland said.

The group will also have a table set up at Brigham and Women’s Hospital next Friday, May 24, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

To attend the Statehouse event, RSVP to Cleaveland at before Monday.
