I'm thinking of either starting a non profit group or trying to get a sub group going under the MOMS group organization.
What it would be is a mom's group for mothers with medically fragile children. (can you come up with name?)
If it's under MOMS group then it would be just like your typical mom's group.. (mom's night out, kids day out etc with maybe slight changes due to medical reasons)... or if it's my own then it would still be ran like a mom's group but with some support services.
Some services I thought of were
1. offering a little care package for mom or dad who are staying with the child in the hospital (trial size toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, comb/brush maybe magazine, protein bars, nuts something like that)
2. pamphlet with support service numbers
3. maybe some type of food program? dropping off gift cards for restaurants or groceries if child is home with medical problems to ease the burden on parents.
Can you think of anything else? Anything to do with this? support services, name... etc?
