Review for Circle Of Care For Families With Cancer, Incorporated, Wilton, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

A truly amazing organization. My son was diagnosed with hodgekins lymphoma at the beginning of summer of his sixth grade year. As most kids were celebrating the start of the summer we were in a hospital and then housebound most of the time. It seemed like every day I was telling what he could NOT do. No going in the sun, no going in the water, no crowds, etc. It was a very lonely and sad time. There was very few positive things I could offer him to take his mind off of this very scary situation. During the chemo there seemed to be very little room for joy. Then came circle of care. They were amazing. They got him involved in the room decoration and had all kinds of ideas. He was able to share with his friends something positive and fun HE was doing! I think it gave him something to focus on and look forward to. It was one of the few things he could actually enjoy and still gets enjoyment out of to this day. It was a wonderful gift which lifted his spirits in a way nothing else could. I can't say enough about these wonderful people who give so much of their time and energy to make complete strangers happy. Thank you circle of care!!
