Attention: Members of our CdLS Community
We are in search of stories to share. We would love to feature your loved one's story.
Why share? Your story is just one form of potential support for another family. Sharing your experiences such as what makes you appreciate every moment with your child, or how you have handled complications that come along with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome, helps other family's know they are not alone. In addition to strengthening the sense of community, sharing your story helps spread awareness to other's about CdLS by providing different perspectives.
What to share? For examples of other stories, click here or visit our "Meet the Kids" page. It is up to you how much or how little you want to share. We understand that some things should remain personal, so we will never ask you to share medical information or anything outside of your comfort. You share anything you want the world to hear!
How to share? To share, just click here and fill out the short form. Within 48 hours, you will receive an email from Mikayla with more information.
