Patients and Families
FOP impacts the entire family — it isn't restricted to stressing the individual with FOP. The Resilient Living program focuses on the emotional well-being of families — including siblings, caretakers, spouses and partners — giving them the skills to be able to bounce back from the challenges they face in life. Learn strategies of how to approach FOP and its challenges in a way that is productive rather than feeling helplessness.
