Global Family Day (members and our volunteers)
Our Family Day is a day for the whole family; for spending a relaxing day together and getting to know other patients and families, in an informal setting.
This day is particularly popular amongst our members and some families even drive more than 2500 km to attend!
In 2020, our Family Day was planned to take place in the Efteling but due to the Corona/COVID-19 virus, this cannot take place.
Announcements regarding the Family Day will be made via email to members, as well as social media channels and our homepage calendar.
Global Member Conference (members and our volunteers)
Our global conference in the Netherlands, in a beautiful, quiet environment in the woods, is for many the time to get personal medical advice and obtain the most up-to-date information. It is also a time to have fun and meet other patients and families in a relaxed atmosphere.
Since 1997, we have been bringing people together and we have welcomed people from all over the world including Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Germany, England, Greenland, Hong Kong, Japan, Norway, Slovakia, USA and Sweden.
Announcements regarding this conference will be made via email to members, as well as social media channels and our homepage calendar.
