Review for Making Headway Foundation Inc, Chappaqua, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughter was diagnosed with a mandibular arteriovenous malformation at age 6 and we were squeezed into the schedule of a renowned noninterventional radiologist early in the day. Still...waiting, waiting, more waiting till the receptionist suggested we visit the Making Headway "playroom" a floor below. There we found adult and child- appropriate snacks... arts and crafts...a strong warm hand held out in welcome...and strong shoulders helping to bear the burden. That was Maya. Maya of the eyes that saw, the heart that felt, the experience that knew what fear we felt and what questions plagued us. We returned to Maya's playroom many times over the years, and each time it made the wait a little easier, a little more delightful, and a lot less lonely. Each time. Every time. We will never forget Maya and how she helped us through some hard times. Thank you, Making Headway!
