Advocacy

CAPPSKIDS advocates for the families.  

Cappskids.org has collected data, interviewed and toured a variety of specialist centers in the country for over 15 years.  At cappskids, we do not give an opinion, we simply assist the family by presenting all options for treatment.  This allows the family to make an informed decision regarding the care and treatment of their child.  

An advocate is someone who provides advocacy support when you need it. An advocate might help you access information you need or communicate with professionals in a supportive role. You may want your advocate to write letters on your behalf, or speak for you in situations where you don’t feel able to speak for yourself or feel that your voice is not being heard.

As advocates, cappskids is independent and will represent your wishes without giving you our personal opinion. We believe that you are the expert when it comes to your child and ultimately you are the decision maker. We will simply assist so that your journey may be a bit easier.

CAPPSKIDS.org does not value any one surgical center more than the next.  While all teams may not be accessible on our website, cappskids.org does have information for all teams in the country and are happy to provide them to you.
