Parent Mentors

Parent Mentors

Would you like to connect with a parent whose child has a similar diagnosis as yours? We have specially-trained parents who want to share what they've learned while taking care of their own children.

Whether you're seeking a peer for emotional support or to learn more about what to expect from a certain medical diagnosis, our parent mentors have volunteered to share their insights about dealing with a similar situation.

Find a Parent Mentor

Once you’ve selected the person you’d like to talk to, you may send a message to the parent using our online form. They have agreed to respond to you by e-mail within 24-48 hours. We also have parent mentors who are not listed in the database. If you don't receive a response from one of our online mentors, or would like to reach a mentor offline, please contact the program coordinator at 330-543-3072 or jdoyle@chmca.org.

Kelly R.
Born at just over 29 weeks, Kelly’s triplets – Mathew, Michael and Morgan – each had a stay of several weeks in the NICU at Akron Children’s. They all experienced complications typical of triplets, but the two boys also had brain bleeds. Mathew’s cleared up on his own but Michael’s affected his motor skills on his right side. Michael is doing well in therapy and has recently started to walk.
