The Foundation welcomes any personal accounts of one's CBS experiences. The sharing of stories can help break the stigma and silence associated with this syndrome. As people living with CBS begin to learn that their experiences are quite common, it can encourage them to discuss their own CBS journey. In turn, this can assist to open up the public discussion of CBS.
It is only through people speaking up - and this includes carers, medical and allied health care professionals - that the syndrome can emerge from its slumber and take its rightful place in public awareness.
