Many families that have a member with a craniofacial condition feel isolated and alone. With Family Networking and social networking, family members are connected with others in similar situations in order to
• share emotional support,
• discuss problems, and
• identify resources.
Being able to communicate with other parents, siblings, or patients can help you feel part of a larger community with others who are ready to help them through rough times, work through decisions and just “be there” for one another.
Getting networked is just a phone call or key stroke away. Click on registration or call 800.535.3643 and ask for Annie Reeves. CCA maintains a list of moms, dads and children interested in communicating with others. We will match you as closely as we can to someone having similar experiences.
