Thursday 9/24 8-9 PM ET
Join the FARA Ambassadors for a hangout for teenagers, 13-19, with ataxia (of any form). FA Teen Hangouts are hour-long web-based hangouts. This is simply a place to meet and talk to other people who may be going through struggles and good times similar to you. (If you don't have ataxia, you are not allowed to participate in the hangout.)
Our Thursday night hangout this month is a discussion lead by FARA ambassador, Madelyn Fredrick about music. Do you have a favorite group or song? That one who always makes you feel good in any situation? Do you make music, what musical instrument do you play? Music remains an unbeatable (or bad mood beatable [ha, ha]) remedy against stress.
Join us to talk or just listen. We are sure you'll find you aren't alone! It is just a relaxed conversation…the theme gets us going, but we definitely don't stick to it! It isn't counselling.
|When:||Thursday, September 24th, 8-9 PM ET
(The hangout opens 15 minutes early to try to work out technical issues. Please remember we are volunteers not IT professionals! Come early if you've never attended a hangout on Zoom before.)
|Who:||Teens with ataxia ages 13 to 19 (Please note: all the teens will be together)|
|Where:||On Zoom so if you have access to the internet, speakers, and a camera on your device, you can come!|
