The Marfan Foundation is holding its Annual Conference in Atlanta Ga on August 3-6. The community we serve suffer from Marfan Syndrome which is a connective tissue disorder which in addition to problems with the aorta can also cause the patient to suffer from a lot of pain. At the conference this year we are hoping to have a workshop on using art to express your feelings about having Marfan, about the pain, the fears, and other emotions. The workshop would be on Sunday, August 6th in the morning. For more information contact Susan Leshen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
