Giving Tuesday

Please consider a donation to the Foundation for Faces of Children on #GivingTuesday, November 27th.
#GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

Our Mission

The Foundation for Faces of Children is dedicated to improving the lives of children with cranial and facial differences, including cleft lip and cleft palate. Our mission is to provide patients and families with the most accurate, up-to-date, and accessible information about facial differences and to advocate for the best care possible.  Our programming provides networking opportunities for parents and children for mutual support.

We pursue our mission by collaborating with leading specialists, endorsing the team approach to care, and partnering with individuals and organizations with similar goals. We are a not-for-profit organization entirely supported by private donations, grants, and fund-raising initiatives.

Craniosynostosis, Explained

The cranium is composed of 5 major bones separated by 6 major seams called sutures. The early closure of any of these sutures, which occurs in one out of approximately every 2,200 births, can lead to abnormal growth patterns of the head as the brain expands in ways it was not meant to. This condition, called craniosynostosis, can lead to an abnormal shape of the head, and in some children it can even affect normal brain development. For this reason, surgical repair of this condition is often recommended.
