After attending the NMF Annual Conference, scholarship recipients said:
"I really enjoyed the Conference. It was awesome to be around people my age with Marfan and we as a family learned a lot. We feel very blessed and thankful to have received a scholarship from the NMF"
"I can't tell you how great this Conference was for my son and me! It has improved his perspective and emotions about having Marfans. He just felt cursed before we attended, but came away with a much broader point of view as a result of all we learned from the entire experience. I wish we had attended before this year."
"The Conference was indescribable! I felt as if I belonged to one huge family and everyone was just like me."
"We would like to thank the NMF for making it possible for us to attend this Conference. We had a great experience and were impressed with the efforts of the foundation to bring people with Marfan syndrome together.
