#WonderWednesday: Richmond VCU Craniofacial Patients See "Wonder"

There is no better way to encapsulate the movie, "Wonder" nor the reason for the Center for Craniofacial Care at Children's Hospital of Richmond to organize their local screening than the quotation made by attendees and parent, Jean Marshall, who said she feels it is important to "Be around people that care about you and stay positive about stuff and don’t let bad things get you down."

Marshall, one of a few parents profiled in this piece about the hospital associated with Virginia Commonwealth University, published in the Richmond Times-Dispatch, tells the stories of real children that live each day like  August Pullman, the main character in "Wonder."  The story reveals more about the courageous, but quietly-lived lives of the over 25,000 children born each year with a facial difference. 

I hope it gives you much needed inspiration, or at least let's you know you are not alone. 

Happy #WonderWednesday to you!
