    On the fourth Tuesday of each month, YOPN members come together to learn, engage, and support one another.  It's a great opportunity to connect with fellow members, share experiences and insights about living with YOPD,  discuss personal challenges as well as potential opportunities, and learn how others thrive beyond diagnosis.  This is your safe space - a place you can be real with others who understand what you're experiencing.
