Every time I attend it gets better and better . . . speakers, networking, etc. and especially the last 2-3 years, clinical trial/studies part of program. Great to see more in attendance!

Talking with doctors and researchers! So helpful. Teen sessions… My kids loved feeling a part of a group of teens that were “like them.”

For our family, this symposium was transformational. We have been given hope. For our daughter, she now has friends who get her!
