The Story of Amanda & her Family

Home > Client Stories > The Story of Amanda & her Family

“Before we started coming to Crann I actually felt very alone. When I found Crann I felt as if we had found our family in Cork that could support us with Kaelyn and my family unit”

Jake, Annabelle, Kaelyn and their mom Amanda are a busy family from Cork. Youngest daughter Kaelyn has Spina Bifida, which affects her spine, and the family have been accessing health, psychological wellbeing and mobility supports at Crann.

Crann understands that when someone in your family has a disability, the whole family needs support to thrive – we call this a 2Gen approach. 

Watch their full story below.
