This project will provide photo sessions, at no cost to the families, for 50 children with special needs. The photos will featured on TheBrainPossible.com, a resource website for children with brain injury and other neurological diagnoses.
Our project aims to solve two problems: 1) Caring for a child with special needs puts tremendous strain on a family's finances. Parents may choose to forego simple joys that other families may take for granted, such as taking family photos, in order to cover health costs. 2) When a child is first diagnosed with a neurological condition, parents search for the best treatment options for their child--a time-consuming and emotionally draining experience that leaves them feeling hopeless.
Who Is Carter is providing photo sessions at no cost to families. The photos from these sessions will be featured on TheBrainPossible.com, a resource website for pediatric neurological conditions. These photos will reinforce the message of The Brain Possible: we are a community, here to support parents just like you. Seeing a real child, living with a real condition just like the one your child faces, brings a sense of hope and reassurance that your child can live a fulfilling life, too.
To our knowledge, there exists no single website that houses comprehensive information about pediatric neurological conditions, along with alternative treatment methods and a registry of practitioners of these methods, aside from TheBrainPossible.com. We aim to make The Brain Possible accessible to thousands of families worldwide, and to connect them with thousands of practitioners worldwide, easing the burden of searching for the best treatments for children facing neurological diagnoses.
