The Los Angeles Chapter, along with the Bay Area and San Diego Chapters, is inviting you to an “Imagination Vacation”!

Travel & Mobility – Since the pandemic has limited the places we can travel physically, join us for an imagination vacation to learn traveling tips & tricks from a FSHD Community member, Danny, sharing his experience traveling solo to Japan, Mexico, Columbia, Paris, Berlin and London with his wheelchair.

We also will be discussing mobility challenges and resources such as best places in Southern California to buy a scooter/ wheelchair, how to navigate wheelchair repairs and outfitting a car with a wheelchair lifts.

We invite you to come to our Zoom prepared to share a travel or mobility resource with our group such as your favorite accessible hotel or destination or an amazing wheelchair repair shop that you love and trust. Resources shared during our chapter meeting will be archived and shared widely with the Southern California FSHD Community as a way of using our network’s insights to help each other navigate living with FSHD.

We’re looking forward to “seeing” you on Zoom October 17!
