Dysautonomia is a broad term used to describe a group of neurological disorders that involve the autonomic nervous system. The Dysautonomia Support Network seeks to bring hope and progress to individuals living with Dysautonomia and associated disorders.

This non-profit organization guides over 12,500 patient members globally through their health management journey, from diagnosis and treatment to advocacy and lifestyle management. Members have access to the resources, support, and education needed to adapt to life with chronic illnesses while being challenged to set new goals despite their physical limitations.

Brooke O'Shea's daughters, Regan and Delaney, were born with Ehlers-Danlos, a genetic connective tissue disorder that often leads to neurological and cardiac complications, especially in the teenage years. The O'Sheas joined the Dysautonomia Support Network and are hosting the event to raise awareness.
