Our family was recipients of Normal Moments services!
The impact it made was unreal, I was able to focus on my sick daughter instead of mundane household tasks. I will always be appreciative of Normal Moments!!!

Normal Moments is an incredible organization that provides much needed services to families with critically ill and medically complex children. It is run by one of the most generous souls I know. I can't think of a better nonprofit to support.

Normal Moments is an excellent organization that helps families with special needs children. My company Crystal Klear Cleaning works with the families assigned to us by Patricia Fragan to provide cleaning services. I would recommend everyone to participate in helping make this organization service more families and build a solid community.

Normal moments has helped our family tremendously over the past two years. The biggest help is with the holiday meals they provide! It takes a long time to prepare those meals and with their help that is one less stressor our family has! Thank you normal moments!

Working with normal moments has been one of the best experiences of my life. Knowing that I am providing assistance to parents to ensure they get to spend more time wth their children is a gift for everyone involved. And that is exactly what I do I help provide normal moments to families in need.

Normal Moments has been here for us even when our own family has not! They send a house cleaner every month to help us keep up with our housework (our 4 kiddos are frequently in the hospital/at dr appts for brain tumor, Trisomy 18, CHD, EOE, spine fractures, etc). Normal Moments has also given us holiday meals (Thanksgiving and Christmas), and connected us with an amazing family that gave our kiddos Christmas gifts! I highly recommend Normal Moments to every challenged family I meet!

Wonderful organization. As a cancer survivor myself, I know how invaluble a little (or alot) of help can be.

When my daughter was fighting Leukemia the second time, she was contacted by Normal moment about fulfilling her Christmas wish. My daughter was volunteering at Homeless shelter before she got sick and she knew what her wish will be. She asked for warm sweatshirts and socks for everybody at the shelter. Normal moments did amazing job and Daniela's best friend ( bc Daniela was in hospital and couldn't go ) delivered all the warm clothes to the Homeless shelter on Christmas Day. Thank you Normal Moments for putting smile on my daughter's face and helping others during very difficult times.

My daughter Amber had brain cancer and Normal Moments helped our family that is absolutely unimaginable! Without their help we would have endured many more hardships!!

I am writing this review because I have heard about the generous amount of help you provided Amber Moosvi and her family as she fought brain cancer. I heard about this group through a post on Team Amber's Facebook page. I think it's wonderful what you do to help families in need of support during difficult times in their lives. Thank you for helping Amber's family. They went through a lot, but were able to stay strong throughout Amber's battle with brain cancer. Especially Amber as she stayed strong and kept that beautiful smile on her face until she passed away. She's probably smiling down on all of us from heaven. Please keep up the great work you are doing. It doesn't go unnoticed and it's greatly appreciated. Thank you for all you do.

I've been watching their posts for a while and I kinda know the lady that produces most of them. She is awesome and so is this cause. I live a ways away but it won't stop my support for what she is doing. It just takes a moment and lives are changed....good or bad. But Normal Moments makes things things a lot better for those that need it. Bless you Pat.

I have volunteered my time in a different organization that provides children with life-threatening illnesses and their families in the recreational sense. I find that Normal Moments provides the absolute essentials that are often overlooked or not thought of and also make a true difference to help families focus more on important things. I am a brand new volunteer, but am very honored to help with such a meaningful cause.

Most people don't understand the stress having a chronically ill child brings into your everyday life. Normal Moments recognizes that and steps in to help out and let you enjoy the normal moments in life. We are just coming home from a lengthy hospital stay and it has been such a relief knowing my house will be cleaned and ready to bring my daughter home to.

This program has done wonders to help families in our area! I am a Service Coordinator for the Early Intervention program (which services children ages birth-three years old with developmental delays or medical complexities). Normal Moments has helped provide relief to families trying to navigate the medical care system, specialists, therapists, and the many, many appointments. Thanks to Normal Moments, the families on my caseload have fewer things to worry about and they can focus on their child getting healthier.

Normal Moments helps our family out by providing cleaning services once a month. Helping me out with simple household chores has a significant impact on my family because it allows me to focus on caring for my son. We also have had a team of volunteers come out and help us with our garden work - a clean yard was one less thing we had to worry about this spring and it made it easier to keep up with over the summer. My boys have also been the recipient of the gift giving program at Christmastime - bringing in a little extra joy during a most difficult time of year for families like me. Thank you Normal Moments!
