Clinic for Special Children
We Are Proud to Support a Great Cause
The Clinic for Special Children in Strasburg, PA specializes in diagnosing, treating, studying and discovering genetic disorders that are frequently found in the Plain (Amish and Mennonite) communities. The children of this community are vulnerable to a rare disorder called CODAS which is an acronym for a set of congenital malformations that affect the cerebral, ocular, dental, auricular and skeletal systems of the child.
When confronted with all the various symptoms of this syndrome, even the most esteemed physicians have no idea how to diagnose and help these young patients. Now in its 25th year, the Clinic serves patients from 34 states and 14 countries. The cutting edge research and treatment that the Clinic provides has extended the lives of children who previously might have had no chance of survival as well as providing services to older patients with severe disabilities. The Clinic also provides much needed support to the entire family of the patient. A community has been created which brings together professionals and patients in an atmosphere of hope and renewal.
To mark a quarter century of operations, a special garden was created at the Clinic’s headquarters. Scott Kirk, president of Earth, Turf and Blooms was one of many professionals who donated their time to ensure the proper installation and construction of all phases of the garden. Scott invites you to learn more about The Clinic by visiting their website.
Giving back has always been important to the entire staff of Earth, Turf and Blooms.
