Online Support Groups
Join a private Facebook support group that allows adults with FA and parents of children with FA to exchange questions and information. An additional private Facebook support group only for adults diagnosed with FA is also available.

Virtual Events to Learn and Connect
FARF hosts a series of virtual events throughout the year to learn about specific FA-related topics and to connect with other FA families. Educational events are recorded and shared following the event.

Family Meeting
Each year, FA families are invited to spend four days at Camp Sunshine, where they get to spend time with other families, attend medical presentations and support sessions. Children and their siblings participate in fun-filled camp activities.

Meeting for Adults with FA
Adults 18+ with FA are invited to attend this meeting each year to network with one another, listen to medical and science updates, and attend support sessions.

International Support
International families may wish to access additional support within their home countries. We can provide contact information for FA support groups around the world.
