Comments from Compassionate Friends who attended the 34th National Conference held in Minneapolis:
"This conference was life changing for me--my daughter died last year. Thank you to everyone that made my experience possible."
"The conference was great as usual. It is great to have a place like the National Conference to be ourselves. The unfortunate part is going home and back to the real world."
"Attending the conference was the best thing I could have done for myself. It's a vacation with my son that I will take every year!!!"
"I attended my first conference and it was one of the best things I have ever done. The friends I made were incredible and the feeling throughout the whole weekend was so healing. I never thought I would have to belong to such a club, but am grateful it is there to help. Thank you TCF!"
