Review for Cranio Care Bears, Kalispell, MT, USA
Our family had never heard the term "craniosynostosis" until the birth of our beautiful granddaughter. We were scared, confused, and felt as though we were completely alone confronting this condition. Cranial surgery? Blood transfusion? It was terrifying. Days before surgery, our daughter and son-in-law received a care package from "Cranio Bears." The package contained items, both personal and practical, that would help them through that overwhelming week. This wonderful support group was founded by two mothers whose children made it through their own surgeries. Their Facebook shout-outs to children and their families all over the world on the eve of their surgeries provide inspiration when it is most needed. The outpouring of support and prayers brought tears of hope and encouragement. We were not alone and we can now pay it forward to support other families. This organization educates and is doing incredible things with grassroots parental initiative. There are all kinds of gift items that raise awareness and raise hope. There are modest funds raised, but they are deserving of so much more recognition and funding. I'm not sure how we would have surmounted that feeling of fear and loneliness without Cranio Bears.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
All they need are recognition and funding. I wouldn't change a thing. They are selfless and completely devoted to educating, inspiring, and celebrating the successes of amazing unsung medical heroes changing lives daily.
