To Transplant, or Not to Transplant
Brett Cromeans Paul W Gunter Emilee Pehrson
Session Format
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM (EST)

Join for a candid discussion among people with CF about transplant – from the anxiety and fear you feel when transplant is first suggested, to deciding if you even want to embark on the transplant journey. Learn how people made their decision to move forward or not pursue transplant and the factors involved, including the physical, mental, emotional, financial, and spiritual considerations.

Session Objectives
  1. Learn what factors to consider when thinking about moving forward with transplant.
  2. Discuss timing, such as the right time to be referred for evaluation and listed for transplant.
  3. Hear the decision-making process from someone who chose transplant and from someone who decided not to pursue transplant.
  4. Address the stigmas around delaying, not receiving, or choosing not to receive a transplant, and how to cope with or find support for your decisions.
