September is Craniofacial Acceptance Month

I urge everyone to print the poster I have included in this post and put it up in your office. To increase awareness is half the battle for children with rare syndromes and illnesses. I also would encourage you all to look at the website. There is great amount of information. Many blessings, Makenna's Mom

What is a craniofacial disorder?

A craniofacial disorder refers to an abnormality of the face and/or the head. Craniofacial differences can result from abnormal growth patterns of the face or skull, which involves soft tissue and bones. A craniofacial condition may include disfigurement brought about by birth defect, disease or trauma. From the Craniofacial Website September 7, 2009
