Ms. Anderson became involved in her profession when she started Neuropathy Group in Auburn, California, in 1998; at the time, she was the secretary for the Auburn Interfaith Food Closet Board. When the board moved, her friend’s husband asked why she needed a cane, and she told him she had peripheral neuropathy. The man replied that he had it, too, and suggested she join The Neuropathy Association. She took his advice, but discovered that although there were support groups, none were near her. She and another person subsequently started the group in Auburn.
