From the Hearts of Our Attendees

Real Stories, Real Impact: Attendee Experiences

“I felt so lost I didn’t know where to turn for answers. I didn’t know who to talk to. No one understood me. Not my family, not my friends. And so this community that we’ve built is so important.”
– Rojan Vokili,
GM1 Parent
“It’s really important to have these family centered conference, and I can’t really understate the importance of advocacy. We have to fight to get attention, to get money, to fund the studies, to find more and more families that feel that they’re living alone so that they can come
together and be part of the community.”
Caroline Hastings, MD
“I think it’s an honor to be here being amongst the community and the families, really helps me to understand, what’s really at stake. It reminds me of why we work so hard for getting a clinical trial.”
Ray Wang, MD
Children’s Hospital of Orange County
