1:45 – 2:10 p.m. Presentation by Fabiana Bacchini, author of From Surviving to Thriving: a Mother’s Journey through Infertility, Loss and Miracles

When Fabiana’s second child was born at just 26 weeks gestational, her life was forever changed. Through the months her son was in the NICU and as he was diagnosed with a complex medical condition that required constant care, Fabiana took each new challenge in stride, her positive attitude never wavering. She is passionate about empowering others to view challenges in their lives as detours instead of roadblocks. Fabiana believes that we can all live fulfilling lives in spite of the challenges we face.
