March 3: Montreal Meet & Greet

Our first Quebec meeting was a success! Gergana (Patient Advisory Board) and Sydney (Executive Director) met with local patients and supporters to share and provide peer support, explain why the Foundation exists, and how they can get involved to help answer TTP.

We are thrilled to have interest from this group to edit our French language translations, become involved on the Patient Advisory Board, organize local patient support group and information sessions, and fundraise for research.

Together we are more than the sum of each part!
