I want to hug everyone there who has made this site what it is. I will see you all in Salt Lake, I arrive the 31st so I should be there for all the fun. see you then, PatJanuary 18, 2017 at 2:24 am #93806

See you soon!January 13, 2017 at 8:42 pm #93804karendParticipant
I’m so excited that I finally get to meet you Lainy! I remember being in Arizona for the foundation one year (maybe 2012?) and we missed each other, so I can’t wait to give you a hug in SLC.
Gavin- Next year !!! and Michelle, I can’t wait to see you as well!!!

Thank you so much, Maiki. We will count on meeting you at next year’s conference!January 13, 2017 at 8:15 pm #93802maikkiParticipant
Enjoy! I am so disappointed that I will miss it, but I will be there next year for sure. For this year, however, I will be watching via the internet! Warm regards and safe travels to all,
MaikkiJanuary 13, 2017 at 7:01 pm #93801
Hopefully next year Lainy. But, it seems that I say that every year! Honestly am not dodging getting over there but you all know how things are here for me.
A ton of videos on the youtube channel as well. I like this one from last years conference a lot. It has loads of you all in it too!
Hugs to all,
GavinJanuary 13, 2017 at 6:30 pm #93800
Hi Michelle, we will be meeting up for sure! So excited I wish is was this weekend! You are a super hero and I have a feeling you will always be a great example for others fighting this monster fight!
See you soon!January 13, 2017 at 5:53 pm #93799mvprattParticipant
I too am very excited to be attending the conference. I attended with my best friend/coworker last year and I have to say the event changed my life. The ability to meet and talk with so many other people who were going through the same thing was mind blowing.. In addition it was at that conference that I learned how survivorship works…. as you know I thought I could not call myself a survivor because I hadn’t beaten this beast yet…. almost as I went 4 years without a recurrence but as I talked with people I learned that I had been beating this beast year after year.. Nothing hold more true this year.
So I am super excited to be bringing my husband, meet all of my Facebook and discussion board friends, and learn so many new things to bring back to my area. i feel my part of the country is a bit under represented so I feel a bit of responsibility to bring the info back and help those in this area have knowledge and hope about this disease.
I also want to thank everyone for continued support I have been absent from the discussion board due to a difficult few months. I had started a clinical trial that just wasn’t for me. Hopefully it killed away the metastatic cells that were floating around but I lost quite a bit of vision and had horrific joint pain. Unfortunately this made me less available and very focused on reversing. I have since left the trial and am starting to feel better. I am grateful that the effects are reversing and my eyesight is almost back to normal. What a strange ride…. another post for sure.
See you guys soon!

We always record the event. Most likely already you know, that you can view the 2016 conference with this link:
We have outgrown our original venue (University of Utah) and have moved this year’s conference to the Salt Lake City downtown Marriott. All in all we expect 300 plus people to attend. This includes researchers, physicians, Pharmaceutical Industry, patients and caregivers.

AND, my son from another MUM, next year for both of us!!!!!!!!!January 12, 2017 at 6:35 pm #93796
Great news!! Hope that you will all have a great time. Actually, I know that you all will!
And yes, I agree with Catherine, pics please. And a video as well like last year!
