BENEFITING: The Foundation for Faces of Children
EVENT DATE: Sep 22, 2013
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page… As we are hoping to raise awareness for Hemifacial Microsomia and other cranial facial conditions!
Karina was born with Hemifacial Microsomia, a condition where the lower half of one side of the face does not develop normally. She was born without her outer, middle ear and was missing her right lower mandible and collarbone. She is followed by Dr. John Mulliken and the cranio-facial team at Children’s Hospital in Boston annually. She has just completed her first stage ear reconstruction surgery by Dr. Arin Greene.
On, September 22, Karina and I will be taking part in the “2013 Paces for Faces Walk” to raise money for The Foundation for Faces of Children. This foundation was started 25 years ago by Dr.Mulliken, Director of the Craniofacial Center and The Cleft Lip and Palate Program at Children’s Hospital Boston. The Foundation for Faces of Children is dedicated to improving the lives of children with craniofacial conditions and offering resources to families like ours to assist with education and resources they may have dealing with the issues that arise from having a child with a cranial facial condition.
If you would like to join our team and walk, please feel free to email me at yes.sal77@gmail. Join us outside for a fun filled afternoon of kid friendly activities, raffles and an opportunity to meet new friends and connect with old friends. The picnic, including lunch and family activities, begins immediately following the walk.
Registration: 10:30am - 12:00pm
Opening Remarks: 12:00pm
Walk Kick off: 12:15pm
Food, raffle and activities: 1:00pm-3:00pm
All proceeds raised will benefit families as they endure the medical care required to help children affected with these conditions.
