Q: How would you describe your experience with FRN?

Parent 3

I was connected with FRN by Kaiser the moment that my child was diagnosed, which was a really
critical point for receiving helpful information through this entire process. Anything later would not
have been as useful. I appreciate that I can keep coming back for additional help when my child
reaches new stages of his journey.


Parent 2

I wish parents knew more about your services and how there is help even according to ethnicity or languages spoken. You guys are awesome!
