Cranio Care Bears provides information, support and care packages for infants/children (and their families) going through surgery for Craniosynostosis. It is a common, often undiagnosed, condition and it's important for folks to be able to find support. My son went through this. It's not an easy time for anyone. CCB is there with kind words, support and awesome merchandise (proceeds go to care packages).

The Cranio Care Bears are truly remarkable. They have brought to light a condition that most people have never even heard of, let alone affected by it. For the many people they help with spreading awareness and in shipping care packages, they have shown these people that they are not alone....that there is an amazing support group out there for people just like them. Not only have the Cranio Care Bears made very difficult situations for families easier to take on, they truly care and want to show the world that. Can't thank them enough for what they do!

Cranio Care Bears is a wonderful group! It's amazing how a little package in the mail from someone who has been thru what you are going thru can help your spirit during such a scary time. From the items that cover your basic needs during a hospital stay to the personal prayer chain created by so many families. Truly an awesome organization!
