A Grandparent's Perspective
Date Posted November 26, 2012
I am not much for writing, however my thoughts go to how much JMCC has become a part of our life and family. We were made to feel loved and supported from the very start when my granddaughter Kristi was just an infant. JMCC has helped us to get through some of the most difficult times with our Kristi who has Arthrogryposis. Explaining to us how a child’s body works with Arthrogryposis - what to expect, what to do; having Dr. Carey, in-house clinics and staff like Laurie and Melanie all strategizing and working so closely together regarding surgeries, doctors’ reports, therapy and follow-ups; being there at every turn in the road; we couldn’t have done it without them!

Having a child with disabilities whether physical or mental, large or small is very difficult at times and without JMCC in place to guide our family, we would be left in the dark about so many things. We’ve all learned so much but I know the transformation of my granddaughter is widely due to the help and support of JMCC. Kristi is attending junior kindergarten at the Centre and while everyone is preparing for her transition to a community school kindergarten, her development and needs still remain number one by those she has grown to know and trust. You are a valued Centre for children and their families; thank you all very much for being there for us; you have been an important part of our lives and we are continually grateful for all your support!
