    AZ in November--yes! My reservations are made. I'm so excited and optomistic about things happening on the research front. W2W is a great conference to hear first hand and find out how we can all speed up the pace. I always depart renewed and more energized. Most everyone attending are really awesome.

    Momo3--NASCAR race in Phoenix on 11/14.
    Please submit your photo and story of hope:

          I don't know about this year but last year I think that it was about $70 if you paid early and then it went up to about $125. My memory might be a little foggy but I think that's pretty close to what it was.

            Gcblarsen, thanks for your interest in W2W. The decision on the registration fee hasn't been finalized yet. In the past, it has ranged from $75 to $150 and I anticipate it being in that range again. We do have a great hotel rate of $109 at the Marriott.

            Once again, we are working to make this as affordable as possible. I hope you will be able to join us!

              Thanks for the info. on NASCAR. We prefer open wheel racing instead but that's okay. Still trying to get the budget together. We would love to come. When will the tentative schedule be posted?

                We're in the process of putting the schedule together. It will be posted on the U2FP website as soon as it's available. I hope you'll be able to join us.

                  we made our hotel resvs already and will look for airfare soon. I didn't realize there was going to be a fee to get in! That is pretty expensive if 3 ppl are going me, Anthony and his dad. Has anyone figured out how to get from the airport to the Mariott yet. I haven't had time to call taxis or see if there are any vans for rent with a lift/ramp yet. The W2W website has no info on that issue yet and the Marriot does not have a shuttle with a lift.

                    Thanks Cindy for your interest in W2W. We do all that we can, to make this symposium as affordable as possible. Fortunately, we’re able to keep the registration fees low with the generous support of our sponsors and numerous volunteers. We have always waived the registration fee for personal assistants. When registration opens, you will register either yourself or husband as a PA for your son.

                    In addition to that, we have been fortunate enough in the past to offer registration fee grants to individuals who qualify for them. The registration grants have been funded by contributions from individuals and companies who specifically donate for this purpose. When and if grant money becomes available, the information will be posted on our website.

                    Regarding transportation, we are currently in the process of exploring accessible shuttle options and will post this information on our website. I wouldn’t be too concerned about accessible transportation in the Phoenix area as there are many options. A quick Internet search comes up with the following -

                    Phoenix Dial A Ride
                    Discount Cab
                    Wheelchair Getaways

                    I hope this information helps and I look forward to meeting you and your family in Phoenix!

                          Hi, I just received a PM from Dr. Xiao saying that he lost your email address and wants to write back concerning attending the meeting. Can you write to him again?

                          Wise.

                                Registration will open up later this summer and I'll be sure to post a message on CC when it does.

                                You can also sign up for newsletters on our website and the details will be sent to you when they become available.

                                Thanks for your continuing interest and I hope to see you there!
