2018 Annual Campaign
The San Jose Auxiliary 2018 Annual Campaign will benefit the Cleft and Craniofacial Center at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. Our goal is to raise $100,000 to fund uncompensated orthodontic care for children with cleft and craniofacial defects. Together, we can make a visible and life-changing impact on children born with these birth defects.
Did you know . . .
- One in every 700 newborns enters the world with a cleft or craniofacial birth defect.
- Cleft and craniofacial defects are the second most common birth defect after congenital heart disease.
- These clearly visible defects often inhibit a child’s capacity to connect socially with peers and others.
- The orthodontic care for these patients is typically not covered by insurance.
The Cleft and Craniofacial Center believes that every child suffering from a cleft or craniofacial defect deserves extraordinary medical care, regardless of the family’s ability to pay. Your generosity will ensure that all children have the opportunity to SMILE and thrive.
