Grief can be isolating, and loss to cystic fibrosis can be even more lonely. This grief support group aims to allow those in the CF community to come together to share their stories of love and care, to talk about the hardest parts of loss and to explore new ways of being without your CF loved one. Learn to cope with grief and grow as a person in this chapter of your life. 

Registration is free, and the class is limited to 12 participants.

Topics include:
- Sharing and Discussion
- Journaling/Writing
- Goal Setting
- Grief Education
- Self-Care Strategies
- Focus on One’s Emerging Self
