Transforming Lives

myFace is a non-profit organization dedicated to transforming the lives of patients with facial differences. With a special focus on children and their families, myFace funds medical, surgical, dental, speech, and psychosocial services as well as research and public awareness.

myFace is dedicated to transforming the lives of patients with facial disfigurement. With a special focus on children and their families, myFace funds medical, surgical, dental and psychosocial services as well as research and public awareness.

There is no condition that impacts the body and the spirit as forcefully as facial difference. In the US alone, one in 700 children is born with an oro-facial cleft. One in 1600 is born with facial asymmetry, a missing ear, jaw deformities, or a defect of the skull, nerves or facial bones. Facial difference demeans and humiliates as it impedes the basic functions which a child needs to survive and grow.

For 65 years, myFace has supported patient care, research and education, and it is this support, together with the donated time of its doctors for those in-need, that has helped over 65,000 patients go on to lead more fulfilling lives.

Currently 54 specialists are divided into ten condition-specific teams addressing every cranial and facial anomaly. Over 2,000 patients, 85% of them children, receive state of the art care each year.

The Newman Family Support Center provides 7 full-time team members and serves 800 patients and their families each year. The team is comprised of a dedicated social worker, clinical psychologist, speech-language pathologist, craniofacial speech physiologist, geneticist, pediatric nurse practitioner, program coordinator, and parent volunteer coordinator.
