#ThankfulThursday: Words and Photos From Pittsbugh's First Friend-raiser Event

It is always great to get positive mail from our CCA friends and families that do new and great things during Craniofacial Acceptance Month. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania got introduced to all the Wonder that is CAM last month, thanks to Elizabeth Kearns and Lisa Bowers. Here is what Elizabeth wrote to us about their experience hosting the first picnic in September: 

September 17th was a beautiful day for Pittsburgh's First Craniofacial Acceptance Picnic! Nine families gathered from all over Western PA to talk treatment, lament about doctors...surgeries, but mostly to watch the kids being kids and to eat some delicious food!  The kids painted rocks for the Kindness Rocks initiative and we made custom tote bags with everyone's wonderful and unique hand-prints. We hope to see everyone and MORE next year!  

We had nine local families in attendance with children and young adults with Crouzon, Pfieffer, Apert, and Treacher Collins syndromes. 

Check out these great pictures, too. Looks like everyone had an absolute blast.
