Every June, patients and families who've been cared for by CHOP’s Center for Fetal Diagnosis & Treatment gather together in Philadelphia for our annual Family Reunion, a fun, inspiring day celebrating all of our amazing families.

The 2019 reunion is scheduled for Sunday, June 2, 2019.

Registration is open, so sign up now! The event is held rain or shine, and there is no fee to attend. Stay tuned here and on our Facebook page for more details as the event gets closer. We can't wait to see you in June!

Back by Popular Demand: Teen Patient Reunion

We are excited to announce the teen patient reunion is back again this year!

From noon to 2 p.m. during the Fetal Family Reunion, we'll have special activities for former patients ages 12 and older. This is a great chance to meet and have fun with other youth who have had unique experiences at CHOP.

If your child was a former CHOP patient and is interested in participating in the teen get-together, make sure you register for the full event, then email Jen Rizzio at RIZZIO@email.chop.edu so we can get an estimated head count, and let us know of any suggestions or questions.

When you arrive at the main registration tables on the day of the Fetal Family Reunion, let the staff know your child is registered for the teen event and they will give you the location and schedule.

Send us your photos – we need 2 from all of you!

Help us make our reunion video

We’ve waited all year to see you here…a recipe for the perfect day with the perfect ingredients…YOU!

Young child holding sign that reads "A dash of mischief" If you'd like to participate in our reunion video, please send us a photo of your child holding a sign that tells us your special ingredient. Our recipe would not be complete without all of you!

It could be a pinch of love, a dash of courage, etc.

If your child is too young to decide their special ingredient, share what you think it is — creativity is welcome! To make it easy, hold up a blank paper and just write the ingredient in your email — we'll add the words for you.

Photos can be emailed to Jen Rizzio at RIZZIO@email.chop.edu. We want to make sure we get everyone’s photos in the video, so if you don’t get a response from Jen Rizzio, that means we didn’t get your photo, so please resend. Deadline for submission is May 13th.

Help us complete our patient collage

We're looking for photos to include in a memory collage we create each year to represent all of the children treated at the Center. Please send a digital photo of your child to Jen Rizzio at RIZZIO@email.chop.edu by May 13th. Be sure to include your child's name and diagnosis in the email.

Watch the video below for highlights from our 22nd annual reunion in 2018 and check our Facebook page for photos from the event.
