Review for Bounce Children's Foundation, Deerfield, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

With a family with a medically complex 10 year old and a 15 year old sibling with special education needs, Bounce has been there for us during our difficult challenges. They have provided opportunities to spend time with other families with medical difficulties, events for our family to reconnect and for awhile to forget about our problems, packages generously provided & packaged by others to help us get keep smiling. Bounce events are one of the only places my son can let go and not worry about what other people think about having feeding tubes, medical problems, etc. Many events and packages have occurred around another surgery, most recently this month. It was something fun and positive to look forward to. We felt so alone before Bounce, and now we have a HUGE extended family of friends to talk with and share our struggles.

Review for Normal Moments Inc, Naperville, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is an excellent organization that supports chronically ill children regardless of disease and income of family. As a family with a sick kid, this organization helped us at a time when things were very challenging. Our volunteer helped with taking the dog out, keeping the house tidy, and ultimately becoming part of our family. When your in the hospital all the time, many things get neglected, including taking care of yourself. To have a “David” (volunteer), helps the family to keep going and have strength. They also help with meals at holidays. Without that, our family would not have had Thanksgiving, as it was too much work.
