Your support will make a significant and lasting impact in the lives of children with craniofacial anomalies! 1600 babies in the USA alone are born with cleft lip and palate (CDC, 2020). Your donation to Face the Future Foundation supports all of the patients at UIC's Craniofacial Center in two ways: we help the medical team have state-of-the-art equipment and we help the Center cover the costs of their multi-disciplinary patient care.
70% of their patients are low income. Many of them have been devastated by the pandemic. But at the Center, every patient is treated, for however long they need care - even a lifetime, regardless of ability to pay!
Help us raise these critical funds.
