Our Mission Statement
Staffed by dedicated volunteers, the World Arnold Chiari Malformation
Association (WACMA) is committed to providing heartfelt support, current information, and
understanding to those affected by Arnold Chiari Malformations, Syringomyelia,
and related conditions.
It is also our goal to raise awareness of
Chiari, to communicate with and
educate the medical community and those affected with the condition as to the complex nature of this disease,
and how it affects the lives of those who know its name.
Our open forum for member discussions is the largest Chiari
support group in the world and we are very blessed to have truly dedicated,
caring, loving members who are knowledgeable and willing to share their
experiences to help make your journey a more positive experience for YOU.
We welcome you to join us and be a part of our mission to "Help More People".
The WACMA site features our member recommended doctors listing, a variety of
helpful articles, illustrations and general information about Chiari and related
conditions, tips on dealing with symptoms, the largest database of archived
information of any Chiari support group in the world, and more. Most of
all, it is the commitment of our members to help others and the opportunity to
be part of the circle of love and support that happens here. We help more
people by sharing our experiences and knowledge and passing it on as a part of
our mission in this life.
