Just like all parents, the families we support have waited patiently and are filled with utter excitement for the arrival of their new baby. But somewhere along the way, something happens. Their child is born prematurely or through a difficult birth. Maybe they have an underlying condition that no one knew about prior to their arrival into the world.
At some point very early on in the parenting journey, someone sits these parents down to give them the kind of news no parent ever expects or is ready to hear. Their child has Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Spina Bifida, or no confirmed diagnosis at all – just the knowledge that something is not right. But no matter what they call it or what it means, their world is forever changed.
THREE TO BE was started with the intention to find a way to help children with neurological disorders by investing in research that could heal a child’s brain and the therapies and technologies that give enhanced opportunities to these children. Along the way, we also realized that there was a dire need to give parents of these children a community they could feel connected to and supported by. This is how our Parent Advocacy Link (PAL) program began.
If you are a parent, caregiver or someone who works with children with neurological disorders, we warmly welcome you to our PAL Facebook Community. This closed space is one where you can share your struggles, successes, concerns, hope and experience with hundreds of others just like you. Alone we are rare, together we are strong.
We want to thank our Corporate Partners for their generous support of PAL and for providing us with the opportunity to better address the here and now needs of our families:
