Shannon's Take

Shannon Schroeder is a mother of two special needs children. Her youngest child was diagnosed with a Chiari Malformation in May of 2008. As such, she has experienced first hand the effects that Chiari can have not only a child, but the entire family. Shannon hopes to work with parents and children to help make this diagnosis a bit easier to understand, and to aid them in finding the help and support that they need.
