2010 JA Conference Notes - Get involved

Reason’s to attend camp, family days, networking events and the national JA conference:
Realize that you are not alone
Get great information on how to deal with the future
Be reassured that your doc is doing the right thing
Get a list of questions for your doc
Meet a lot of great parents to help you along this journey
We hear other parent’s concerns and when we encounter the same thing we are better prepared.
Find out about new treatments
Advocacy networking
Reason’s for your child:
Realize they are not alone
They learn about the disease from a kids perspective
They get answers to their questions from their older peers
Meet life long friends to help them through the bad days
Realize that flares are normal
They see older kids going through the transitions and find out what works and what doesn’t. (Daycare to school, middle school to high school, driving, college, etc)
