Member Testimonials

“It’s helpful to be around people who are in the same situation as you. In everyday life this condition is something I don’t talk about because no one understands it. At the conference, I can.”
parent of child with ARM

“The Pull-thru Network is my lifeline because I know someone has already gone through what we’re going through and they can help us. It is wonderful to see all the doctors support these special kids by coming to the conferences. It makes all the difference in the world for these kids to know they are not alone!”
