This charity gives hope to those who are effected by a condition that is at first scary, and hard to understand. They spread awareness, connect families with other resources, and offer emotional support. I am so grateful for the cranio care bears, and all that they do. Giving a parent hope over their child's condition has more value then words can ever express. It enabled me to for-see a a bright future for my son, when certain doctors even were unclear. Thank you!

connect with a resource for more financial capacity to help families with travel expenses.

When our son was diagnosed with right Lambdoid Craniosynostosis I did what any parent does in that situation and Googled everything I could get my hands on. When I came across Cranio Care Bears it was so full of information and support! Then when I heard they provide care packages for families going through surgery I was thankful to know that someone cared enough to think of my son and our family through the process. I was overwhelmed by the beautiful care package we received. Summer and Shelby were godsends for us at a time we really needed them! Thank you ~ Amy Greathouse

As a new mother, the thought of your child having a major surgery at just a few months old is terrifying. I am so glad I found Cranio Care Bears online! I was inspired by the strength of the families that had already gone through what we were about to experience. The support we received from these families and from Summer was incredible! Summer brought an amazing care package to the hospital. She was so encouraging and positive during her visit. We are so grateful for Cranio Care Bears!

Cranio Care Bears is such a fabulous orginaziation. When my son was diagnosed earlier this year I had no idea what Sagittal metopic was. Because of their time and dedication my sweet baby had an awesome care package, and I learn so much.

Cranio Care Bears are amazing! We were given a week's notice for my son, Liam's, surgery. The care package arrived two days prior to his surgery date. Everything in the care package was very nice.

These ladies are truly a gift!! Seeing first hand the comfort they bring to not only the child but to the family as well. Being a cranio uncle myself, my sister found a lot of comfort and support through Cranio Care Bears. We have donated several times and will continue to donate so they can help others as they helped us through a really hard time. Thanks again to all involved!!!

Words can not express how this organization has helped me in to many ways. They were there to listen and just be there during the hardest time in my life. They sent my son who was diagnosed with sagittal Craniosynostosis, a care package before his surgery filled with stuff for him and I to make the waiting and recovery a little bit better. I will always hold them close to heart and I don't know what I would have done without them. There is not enough "thank you's" in the world that can thank them enough.
