Does anybody have more of in insight of the 3rd Annual Conference. I there is no info I can find on it on this site, but on birthamrks.com I know it is at the Beckman Laser Institutein in Irvine CA, and the fee for the conference is $50, and if you want a consultation in the clinic it is a additinal $50.
I am also going to the conference, I can't wait to meet everyone and also to meet the amazing and wonderful doctors. This will be such a learning experience for me, this is will be the 1st conference I have ever attended!!!!
I think you will be in for a treat. It is kind of a weird feeling starting out, but then it really sinks in and you finely feel like you fit in and you are not being judged. This will be my first PWS/VBF confrence, but my second one I have ever been to.
Can not wait to meet you Julie and Corinne as well. It is going to be a very interesting confrence hu Corinne? Wink Wink. lol But of course I will have a second surgery before Oct as well.
Hi !! I won't be able to make this one. I wanted to, but I can't pull both kids out of school for the trip.
I went two years ago when it was in New York. It was a great experience.
Have a safe trip.
