FA Hangouts 8

The FARA Ambassador Program presents an FA Hangout with the theme of: Discussing the film The Cake Eaters.
At FA hangouts: we laugh, we connect, we hangout, we learn from and about each is so fun! 
This month’s hangout is open to anyone with FA and a translator if needed. We can talk about The Cake Eaters. It is a coming of age movie in which the main character (played by Kristin Stewart) has FA. You don’t have to like it! In fact there will be more to talk about if we have pros and cons to discuss. Watch the movie before the Hangout and be ready to join in on the conversation! Here are a few online spots to stream The Cake Eaters... 
Stream for free from (this is just a resource, we haven’t used the site)
Hangouts will be held Wednesday, August 26 and Thursday, August 27 (mark your calendars, FA Hangouts will be the last Wednesday and Thursday of the month, except on holidays and the like) at 7 & 9 PM EST both days. More times will be added if needed. Email to sign up or ask questions. Please indicate if there are any times that do not work for you and which times you’d prefer. We will try to accommodate everyone.
An email will go out as soon as you register for some things to think about when you watch the movie as well as one 30 minutes prior to your assigned time with a link to join the Hangout. Feel free to come early for a pre-hang. We will open the hangout room a half hour early, but the topic conversations will begin at the top of the hour.
See you soon!

The FARA Ambassador Program

The FARA Ambassador Program

The FARA Ambassadors are a united team of patient volunteers living with FA who are committed to supporting FARA in the search for a treatment and cure.
Together we seek to know more about FA, and FARA so we can be prepared to represent the community when the opportunity arises; speaking at events, to volunteers, potential donors, scientific groups, pharma partners, media interviews and other awareness and fundraising opportunities. We believe support is key to continued success toward our ultimate goal of treatment and a cure. Participants in the FARA Ambassador Program are passionate about building and upholding relationships within the FA community.
The FARA Ambassadors are positive, supportive, peer representatives for the FA community, actively raising awareness and funds for FARA. To learn more about the FARA Ambassador Program or to have a FARA Ambassador speak at your event, please contact:
