Description:

The ups and downs and constant vigilance of caring for a loved one with Fanconi anemia can have an impact on caregivers' mental health. Join fellow FA caregiver, Allison Breininger, for a group discussion about how these impacts show up in our lives as well as what it's like to support our loved ones as they experience challenges with their own mental health.

Event Details: This event will be hosted from 10:00-11:30 a.m. Pacific Time (MST +1, CST +2, EST +3 hours)
