  • My mentor has continued to be a great contact for me to have. I know that I can call her anytime and she will give sound advice, or just listen... She's been a great example for me and I hope to mentor one day as well as she has.

  • Having a newly-diagnosed child... is so overwhelming and isolating... knowing someone else who has been through it and understands what you are going through, not only provides support but offers hope.

  • I just want to say thank you for your help & all the great information you gave me. And just thank you for doing what you do. If it weren't for people as dedicated to helping like you, I don't know where or what I would do. One day I hope to be able to do the same because it isn't just passing along knowledge & info, it's giving hope to parents & their children's futures! So again thank you so very much!
