Bee-Worthy Share: Sibling Appreciation Day

"You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them." 
- Desmond Tutu

I am sure most families would agree, that siblings of a child who has special medical circumstances grow in to a new breed of individual. They are kind, compassionate, understanding, and always willing to help with an open-mind and nothing but love in their hearts. The siblings are often set aside during hospital stays, medical emergencies, or day-to-day events when their brother or sister requires so much attention from their parent. 

Our friends at Pediatric Hydrocephalus Foundation are hosting a Sibling Appreciation Day on Saturday, September 15. If for no other reason at all, be sure to check out the adorable pictures shared there and share one of your own child with hydrocephalus and his/her brothers and sisters! You'll see Brayden there with his sisters Isabella & Adysson:

From the Facebook page for PHF Sibling Appreciation Day: 

"The PHF is proud to announce as part of its 'Families First for Hydrocephalus', a new program for all Hydrocephalus families. In the battle and fight against Hydrocephalus, the family unit is very important. 

One of the often forgotten soldiers in this battle is the sibling(s) of the person with Hydrocephalus. The PHF wants to thank those brothers and sisters by introducing "Hydrocephalus Sibling Appreciation Day" around the Country on September 15th 2012 to coincide with September's National Hydrocephalus Awareness Month.

**10 Families will be randomly chosen on Saturday, Sept. 15th, 2012 in honor of PHF~Hydrocephalus Sibling Appreciation Day!

**Winners will receive a Family Fun Movie Night Package compliments of the PHF, Inc.!
