Just prior to the start of the 2023 FOP Family Gathering, the first-ever FOP siblings workshop will be led by Alicia Maples, sibling to one living and one deceased brother with special needs, speaker and presenter of the TEDx talk "Recognizing Glass Children." Alicia is passionate about the power of relating and connecting fellow siblings through her story and the conversation that ensues.
Adult brothers and sisters of individuals with FOP are invited to spend the day connecting and learning over their shared sibling experience. Programming is appropriate for those who have a living or deceased sibling with FOP. This workshop will only be offered in person for English-speaking siblings who are over the age of 18.
