Lunch 'N Learn Program in Mason
Wednesday, November 13, 2013 • Posted November 14, 2013

The Wesley Nurse at First United Methodist Church invites you to take part in a free Lunch ‘N Learn program open to all citizens in the Mason area. The program is aimed at providing current information on with a rare condition called Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC).

AMC is a neuro-musculo-skeletal disorder that affects various joints in the body. The condition is congenital and nonprogressive. The joints in the body show contractures, stiffness, poor mobility or immobility and muscle fatigue.

Angel Arredondo, a native of Mason, was born with AMC. She has overcome many obstacles that most people would consider far too difficult, considering her limitations. After realizing the importance of sharing her story with others, Angel was determined to become an advocate and speaker for the AMC community, and for people living with all disabilities. Her mission is to encourage others by providing an inspiring example of courage, so they too can embrace their own diversities and know they can succeed at anything they desire in life. She strives to educate the able bodied community as well, so that can better understand the needs of those in our community who have a disability and celebrate their differences and achievements. Angel is looking forward to meeting all of you in Mason and sharing her story while answering your questions.

The program will be held Thursday, November 14th in the social hall of the Methodist Church at 224 Broad St, at 12:00 p.m. Participants are encouraged to bring a sack lunch; beverages and dessert will be provided. For further questions or information, please call Ann Scarth, RN at 325-347-5983.
