Canadian Guillain-Barré Syndrome Awareness Society
Founded in 2017, to promote awareness of the early symptoms of GBS
There are approximately 5000 known cases of GBS annually in North America and one fifth of these result in death. With broader awareness of GBS and the early symptoms associated with this disorder we hope to significantly reduce the number of fatalities from GBS worldwide.
Furthermore, if treatment is sought is the early onset stages recovery is more complete and the recovery period is much shorter. The recovery period can range from 6 months to several years depending on the level of progression before treatment is started.
