When my daughter was first diagnosed, I was so thankful that there was a foundation of support - both emotionally and for medical assistance. Keeping in touch with others in this foundation, NNPDF, has been a huge support for me.... My daughter, Bryanna, died in 2006 at the age of 14 years...Our annual NNPDF Family Support and Medical Conference [will] take place July 28-31, 2011, in Norfolk, Virginia....They have wonderful information sessions that discuss the various medical issues that affect people with Niemann-Pick Disease - all types. If you can make it to the conference, it would be wonderful to meet you in person and there is so much information to assist families....
Thank you, Judy! We hear from families, year after year, how their experiences at the Family Conference provide an incomparable source of love, understanding and support, and we hope everyone will join us in Virginia this July.Norfolk is a spectacular destination for families, providing our members the opportunity to combine the Family Conference with a wonderful family vacation.

Please note that travelers to Toronto from outside Canada (including the U.S.) will need passports. Be sure to allow plenty of time for passport processing. According to the U.S. Dept of State site, current passport processing times are about 4 - 6 weeks, but during busier times, such as the summer travel season, they encourage customers to use the expedited service for applications if the travel date is closer than 10 weeks away. If you have a current passport, be sure to check the expiration date and apply for renewal if necessary. The U.S. Dept of State site advises that, if possible, you should renew your passport approximately nine months before it expires. See question #9 on this page for more details. If the additional cost of passports is a financial hardship for your family, please contact Nadine Hill at the NNPDF. Visit the U.S. Department of State's Passport page for more information, and the Canadian government's site to ensure you are eligible to enter Canada.Medical Equipment - Oxygen Supplies
Travelers who require oxygen supplies should be able to work through their current oxygen provider to arrange the oxygen in Toronto through the network of suppliers, and the suppliers should be able to handle the necessary documentation. Arrangements should be made well in advance of travel.
Oxygen providers serving the Toronto area:
Proresp - www.proresp.com 1-800-563-8981
Medigas- www.medigas.com 1-866-446-6302 affiliated with Praxair in the US
Vitalaire- www.vitalaire.com 1-800-567-0202 affiliated with the Air Liquide Healthcare network Medigas and Vitalaire have information regarding travel on their Web sites. They suggest that arrangements for oxygen be made at least a month prior to international travel.
Remember that Canada's currency differs from U.S. currency, and the exchange rate varies daily. Using credit cards avoids the need to convert cash, as the conversion is handled by the credit card company. If you prefer to carry cash, convert your currency in advance, if possible. (Your home bank should be able to make the conversion or tell you where you can convert currency locally.) Currency may also be exchanged at Toronto Pearson Airport and at the Delta Chelsea front desk. Many retailers and restaurants in Toronto will accept U.S. currency, but may charge a fee or use an exchange rate not advantageous to the traveler. Do not plan to exchange currency at a bank in Canada, as most banks will only exchange currency for their own regular clients with ID, due to government regulations. Currency converter tool Transportation Options
Flights are available into Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) (the main Toronto airport) and, from a limited number of U.S. cities, into the smaller Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ) (also known as City Centre Airport). Flying into Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport requires a short ferry ride from the airport to the city.
Depending on your location, you may want to consider transportation other than just international flights. One of our members from the eastern U.S. has done a bit of early planning, and she discovered that taking a train to Toronto is more economical than flying, and for one family from the Midwest, flying into Buffalo, New York, and then taking a bus across to Toronto is a significant cost savings.
