ABOUT THE GROUP:
This will be a time to be our authentic selves and explore our many talents with one another. Join the group with whatever items you may need to show off your talents, such as, bagpipes, tap shoes, sketchpad, or a karaoke machine! If that is a little too out there for you, you may also tell us about your talents and hobbies. We hope that this will be a fun time to celebrate and discuss the many incredible gifts within this very special community.
*This group is open to individuals with FA, parents, significant others, and caregivers of those affected by FA.
