Thank You Snowy Mountains!!! – A message from Dave Kelly
On behalf of all the Coffin Siris Syndrome families from around Australia, only 36 we know of, we managed to unite 20 of those from nearly every state as well as a New Zealand family. Our inaugural retreat here in Jindabyne was a massive success.
To meet in person was amazing; to share our knowledge of therapists, medications, doctors and most importantly, secure our lifelong friendships we now have in understanding the struggles we all share with this rare syndrome.
To everyone else who donated, bought auction prizes and/or volunteered your time for babysitting or simply just to be there for us, thank you to the following businesses and individuals from our CSS families, myself, Natalie, Grace, Declan and Charlize.
