Our Families

Children's Special Health Services provides both financial assistance and clinical services to children of Montana. The families who have participated in one or both of our programs have provided the following pictures and comments to CSHS to share their experiences with others. We appreciate the support and kind comments provided to us by the individuals.


Bradyn "Our pediatrician gave us several options to explore, one of which was Children's Special Health Services that happened to be holding a (cleft/craniofacial) clinic soon after our son was born. We decided to attend clinic. The "team" of professionals at the clinic was amazing." Amie, Mother of Bradyn (4 months) & Bryson (4 years)
Haleigh "Without the help of CSHS, I would not have been able to get the supplies that my daughter needs for her diabetes." Michelle, Mother of Haleigh (10)
Natasha "If we did not have you for help, I don't know where we would be right now. My daughter gets to see the best doctors and she gets help with her prescriptions. It's a wonderful program." Russ & Cindy, parents of Natasha (13)
Mary "Children's Special Health Services was the light at the end of the tunnel for our daughter, Mary who has Cystic Fibrosis. We had run out of resources and Corliss, our Outreach Coordinator, helped us through the maze that put our daughter back on the road to better health. We are thankful and can not say enough good about Children's Special Health Services." Carl & Leslie, parents of Mary (16)
Joni "I have been attending the metabolic clinic for 23 years. Thanks to the support and care from the metabolic clinic, Dr. Thomas, my husband, and my family, I had a healthy baby girl, which is not an easy task for a mom with PKU. The metabolic clinic has helped me control my diet, and guided me in the right directions. Thanks to everyone for everything you guys have done, it is greatly appreciated!" Joni, Mother of Kaetlin
