While this is not a family that you expected or ever dreamt of joining, we welcome you to process, reflect, learn, and walk with us along this journey. We’d love for you to come and join in on this meeting. We would like to especially encourage those recently entering the FA community and new to the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund.

*Open to those affected by a recent FA diagnosis, including individuals, parents, caregivers, and significant others (18+). The group also welcomes FA individuals and caregivers who have been involved in the FA community and would like to offer their support to those affected by a new diagnosis.
