So glad I found this

My grandson was recently diagnosed with FA. In my search for any and all information, I stumbled on this podcast. I have binge listened to years of episodes in the last few weeks, so Kyle and Sean now feel like family. I am so thankful to have found this podcast. It has been a tremendous source of information and hope.
