Review for Cranio Care Bears, Mead, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son was born with Metopic craniosynostosis. This means that the front two plates of his skull fused too early. He had to have major surgery to correct his skull and give his brain the right amount of room to grow. Cranio Care Bears was there every step of the way! We were lucky enough to have Shelby from cranio care bears with us the day of our sons surgery. Having some one there who understood exactly what we were going through, was wonderful. The care packages they mail out to families are full of thoughtful goodies that made our hospital stay a little easier at such a hard time. I can't explain how much these women's continued support means to our family.

Review for Cranio Care Bears, Mead, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Cranio Care Bears is amazing!!! When my son was born with Metopic Craniosynostosis, I felt scared, lost and alone. I soon found these wonderful women. I am lucky to live in the Seattle area, so I got to meet Shelby in person. These women were there with their support the 9 long months we had to wait for my son's major reconstructive skull surgery. They answered every question I had, and put me in touch with other moms who have gone through the same thing. On the day of surgery, Shelby met us at the hospital. She stayed with us all day as we waited for my son's surgery to be over. I can not begin to tell you the support she was that day. She brought with her the cranio care bear package, which had everything we would need for our hospital stay! The best item was the prayer chain Shelby hung on my son's hospital crib in the pediatric intensive care unit, right after his surgery. I read that every day while we were there, knowing I was surrounded by people who understood what I was feeling. My son is doing amazingly well, you would never have known he went through anything! I know I could not have done it with out the love and support of Cranio Care Bears!!
