I truly love Cranio Care Bears. After my surgery in December, I received the most amazing care package. I was so thankful to have everything that I might need in order to have a good recovery. Now, 8 months later, Shelby and Summer have become truly some of my closest friends. I have been able to come to them several times and ask for a care package on behalf of some of my friends that have not heard of this organization. I truly love Summer, Shelby, and cranio care bears. XOXO

Such a thoughtful care package from people who understood what we were going through was very touching to me. Having your baby go through a major surgery is very scary. I didn't know anyone who had been through this so the package was very comforting. It is amazing that these moms spend their personal time and effort creating these packages.

Words cannot express our heartfelt gratitude to Cranio Care Bears. Finding out about our daughters diagnosis was overwhelming. The thought of this type of surgery was unthinkable. Knowing it was our only option, we eturned for support and could not have received a more personal, thoughtful and meaningful package from this amazing organization. The care that goes into each and every item is so evident that it really touches your heart to know that complete strangers are supporting you and your family. We will never forget you and our appreciation goes beyond words. Thank you for all that you do!!!

These gals will never fully know what their support through their care box meant. Even now, 5 months post op, tears come as I recall my daughter in laws face as she read the prayer chain prior to Andrews surgery and then hung it in his IC room. Because it came from people with first hand experience, this personal touch was even more special! Thank you is just not enough, not only to the gals who put the boxes together but also to the folks who provide the items. Just Amazing....

Our six year old had his second craniosynostosis surgery and the ladies at Cranio Care Bears were a tremendous support, for us and our son. The care package which included hospital necessities but fun items for Gage were very meaningful; especially the prayer chain. Thank you so much for what you do.

The amount of support given to us was so great as we headed into surgery with our 11 week old son. I can not express the gratitude we have for this group. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

When our daughter was diagnosed with Craniocynostosis we had never heard of it before. I immediately went online to look for information. Through Facebook I found Cranio Care Bears and I am so fortunate that I did. These moms are amazing and have been such a great source of information, support and encouragement. The care package that they sent before her surgery in March was amazing. The prayer chain alone was such a great gift that we will always cherish and make sure our baby girl knows where it came from. Thanks for all you do to support cranio families and bring awareness to the condition.

Cranio Care Bears is an AMAZING support to families whose children are facing surgery for Craniosynostosis. My 3 month old son was diagnosed with Sagittal Cranio and just had surgery 2 weeks ago. The ladies from Cranio Care Bears offered such kind words of support and guidance. They also offered prayers for my little guy and their own experiences, which was so comforting. The care package they sent for me and my baby was absolutely the most heart-warming and incredible gesture. We so appreciated all of the little items, like snacks and toiletries for the hospital. By far the best thing in the package was a prayer chain to hang on his hospital crib, which is now hanging in his nursery. Other really great items in the package were a hat for my baby boy's sensitive head after surgery, soft socks for me and for him, a soft blanket for him, a soft book and teething toy for him, and lotion and chapstick for me. Those are just a few of the great items in the package.
