Well, the wait is over! Grab your family calendar and save the dates!

We want to invite you and your family to Dallas, Texas on October 2-4, 2014 for our 2014 Conference: “HoPE in the Heart of Texas”.

The conference is a collaboration between Families for HoPE and the Carter Centers for Brain Research in Holoprosencephaly (HPE). All sessions of the conference will be held in the conference center at the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.

Sessions will be held Thursday afternoon thru Saturday afternoon, but be sure to arrive on Wednesday evening/Thursday morning in time to attend our “Meet & Greet” at the Carter Centers. We are still working on what topics will be in our sessions. If you have any suggestions on what you wish to be covered, please email Ed Tierney at

We are still working out some of the details for hotel accommodations and meals. Special requests for meals will need to be placed when registration is completed.

Keep an eye out for the registration information in early 2014.

Be sure to save the dates. “Come find HoPE in the Heart of Texas!”

With HoPE,

Ed Tierney
Families for HoPE, Inc.
