myFace is honored to provide critical psychosocial services to Richard Lee Norris on an ongoing basis including speech therapy, nutritional support and psychological counseling. myFace additionally provides airline transportation and housing to Richard when he travels to NYC for his medical appointments. He has become an integral member of the myFace family and mentors our younger patients in need of support. myFace, the not for profit organization that funds The myFace Center at the Hansjörg Wyss Department of Plastic Surgery, NYU Langone Medical Center, will continue to support Dr. Rodriguez, Richard and other facial transplant patients with their psychosocial needs and beyond.

Thanks to the incredible vision and generosity of the late Arthur and Eileen Newman and the Newman Family Foundation, myFace created the Newman Family Support Center in 2000 at the IRPS. The Center offers vital psychosocial support to patients with facial disfigurement and their families.
