The conference will be attended by families, nurses, researchers, professors and Doctors from across the world who will share their MCADD knowledge, experiences and research. We have been asked to be the first family to speak at the conference – how amazing!
Charlie’s tiny life is having such an inspirational influence. CLIMB are also using Charlie’s fund to improve life for families living with MCADD by changing the main protocols and guidelines and translating them into the major European languages so that families can download copies to take with them on holiday.
