This Month's Topic: Coping strategies while navigating a rare disease
Welcome to our group in Victoria B.C.! Please come and join us at our monthly parent meetings which will range from themed parent discussions, guest speakers and videoconferencing with guest speakers in Vancouver. We aim to learn from each other and to find out more about caring for our special children -let's navigate the world of rare disease together. New parents always welcome.
Topic: Coping strategies while navigating a rare disease
Families are dealing with different highs and lows throughout the journey of having a child with a rare disease. Coping with this flux can be challenging but many parents and families have developed their own strategies for coping. We are setting aside the first hour of our meeting to bring to the discussion ways that have helped our families cope. What has work and, on the flip side, what has not! Come share your game plans and learn about others in a hope to make the journey less bumpy....
The first half of the evening will be dedicated to the above topic and the second half of the meeting will be open for discussions.
As it is really helpful for us to have an idea of who is able to attend, we would really appreciate people RSVPing to Jocelyn(email:Jocelyn.CarterSim@viha.ca) by Tuesday morning of the meeting day. We understand that life happens and we won't hold you to coming but we like to have a sense for food and drinks as to who will likely be attending. Thank you in advance. :) This has been helpful in the past so really appreciate all those who respond.
Light refreshments will be provided at the meeting.
Our next meeting is scheduled for March 13, 2018.
New parents are always welcome. Drop-ins are welcome.
