Craniosynostosis Awareness: Andre's Story

Today we got a chance to catch up with Angela Grim. Her son, Andre, was diagnosed with sagittal craniosynostosis back in April.

“When I received the diagnosis I was devastated,” she told us. Before that day Angela had never even heard of the condition. Thankfully, after meeting Izabela Tarasiewicz M.D., her fears slowly started to abate. Angela explained to us how Dr. Tarasiewicz always took the time to answer questions and provide encouragement, before her son’s surgery and well into his recovery. Angela’s advice to the other parents is not to panic when they first get the news; great physicians like Dr. Tarasiewicz will be there to support you every step of the way.

It been a few months since Andre had his surgery, and we’re happy to report that he’s doing great. He’s been running around and having fun just like any other kid his age!
