October 14, 7pm: CFF Cares
CF Foundation Cares is a casual gathering where those who are caring for people with cystic fibrosis can find support by connecting with fellow members of the CF community. The agenda for this virtual conversation is to share thoughts and experiences around school-age children and returning to school. How are families adapting to the new year? Are there questions that might be answered by other CF parents/caregivers? Are there lessons learned or observations to share? CFF Cares is not a counseling session. It is a place to have candid conversations, make lasting friendships, and discover new ways to navigate the CF journey. It is a place of encouragement and hope.
