My William had cranial surgery about 8 months ago. My husband and I were extremely worried and in dread of all our child would have to face. This wonderful organization provided love, support, prayers, awareness, a forum for connection with other parents and a sweet care package including a prayer chain which we treasured. The support, love, caring helped us get through this incredibly hard time.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them spread a awareness to continue their great work.

Cranio Care Bears is a wonderful organization run by people who truly care about each "care bear" they serve. My nephew is a cranio kid and had his surgery several months ago. Cranio Care Bears sent my nephew, brother and sister-in-law some goodies and words of wisdom before his surgery. I know my brother and sister-in-law truly appreciated the support, advice and encouragement they received from this organization. Each child is treated with love and you can feel what an inclusive and warm family this organization creates. I love this organization and will be donating to them each year in my godson's honor. Thank you, Cranio Care Bears!!

Cranio Care Bears is an absolutely incredible organization there for our family in the scariest time of our lives. The volunteers behind the scenes do an incredible job creating the care packages and sending such love and support during the darkest days. We couldn't have made it through our craniostynosis diagnosis if it weren't for the support of Cranio Care Bears

The ladies at CCB are wonderful! When my daughter was diagnosed in 2008 it was probably the scariest moment of my life that far and i faced it alone with no one who could be a listening ear on the many nights i cried wondering why my baby, but she made it thru just fine and our life continued on as normal as it shouldve. then in spring of 2012 she started having severe headaches and back to the drs we went only to find out that she would have to undergo not only one more skull surgery but 2 and that overwhelming feeling that id felt 4yrs earlier returned but thus time i yped into the search box on Facebook "cranio" and up popped an entire screen full of pages that were set up as support bwtwoeks for parents of cranio kids. it is there i git in touch with the ladies at CCB and they were absolutely wonderful, when i had questions they were always quit k to help did an answer if they didn't know it already and the day that my little girl went in fir surgery they made sure to talk to me to see how things were going...they were a great support system! They also sent my little girl a wonderful care package before her surgery that had lots of cool things for her to do during her stay at the hospital and goodies that she loved so much....My emotional well being during my daughters 2nd and 3rd and ICP bolt surgery was so much better than the first time around and that is all because of the wonderful ladies at CCB and all the other wonderful families i have met because of the network of support that is now there....

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

NOTHING! they are great!

What a wonderful organization! We received a care package last summer when our son had his 2nd surgery. Not only do they send care packages to patients undergoing surgery, they are an amazing resource for information for the various cranio conditions and support!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would ensure they had the funds and resources to expand their reach and support/services!

Cranio Care Bears is by far the top resource moms like myself have for not just support for families with cranio kids but as a place to reach out and share experiences with other families. Before my daughter was diagnosed I had never heard of craniosyntosis. This organization was a life saver to me when I felt the most lost I had ever been in my lifetime. I can not imagine what I would of some without the wealth of information they provided and the love they share for all kids and families going thru this same process.

I don't even know where to begin on writing a review about how WONDERFUL CCB's is. I was born with craniosynostosis 25 years ago and my parents had no knowledge or support during such a tough time with surgery. One year ago I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy who was also diagnosed with cranio. I fortunately had CCB's to turn to for information, care, and support. While on the toughest journey of our lives, CCB's showed us that there are many more families facing the same troubles and that they would be there for us!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Not change a thing!!
