The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., has created a safe space for siblings of children with disabilities to talk with others in similar situations about what it's like living with a sibling with a chronic medical condition or developmental disability. "They feel this incredible strength, this kind of unity with the other siblings who are there who say 'I know exactly how you feel. That happens to us in our house,' " Mayo Clinic social worker Kelli Passalacqua said.
