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....

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!

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

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!

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.
