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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
We rely on your generosity to provide quality medical care to every child who needs us.
