Every hour, a child is born in the United States with a craniofacial condition which uniquely impacts both the body and spirit.
95% of them will undergo multiple surgeries and long-term medical care throughout their childhood and into their adult life.
Each year, the faces of another 100,000 individuals are disfigured through accident or disease.
myFace aims to provide individuals and families with the care, tools and information they need to successfully navigate their journey and live their best life possible.
Because facial differences can impact the body and spirit so significantly, myFace provides vital services such as individual and family support groups, and networking opportunities that let craniofacial patients and families know they are not alone. myFace also offers support to new parents through our Newborn Craniofacial Care Kits that contain useful items for families in need.
