First Annual BOS Meet-Up
The BOS Foundation hosted the first annual BOS Family Meet-Up Event on August 13, 2016 in Philadelphia, PA at the Northeast Racquet Club and Fitness Center.  This event celebrated our BOS children and families and was a huge success! Fourteen families attended and many met in person for the first time. Families were able to exchange information and ideas, and ask questions of not only each other, but also of two of the BOS Foundation’s Medical Advisory Board members, Dr. Bianca Russell and Dr. Wen-Hann Tan.  Entertainment included a face-painter, Lily the Therapy Dog, and a balloon entertainer.  Families were able to spread out and enjoy an afternoon together and Gina Marie Photography was able to capture many special moments from the event.  The BOS Foundation is already starting to plan next year’s Meet-Up Event...stay tuned!
Welcoming families one gift at a time! 

The BOS Foundation helps patients and their families adjust to the new diagnosis of BOS. To help with the transition from undiagnosed to ultra-rare, the Foundation sends welcome packages to families. Our packages include information about BOS and the Foundation, a resource page, a BOS child’s story, BOS pens and stickers, and a small toy for the BOS child.  In 2015, eleven families received these packages with the hope of sending encouragement, educating these families, and building an increased sense of the BOS community.  Help support the welcome baskets by donating today!
