Fresh Start Caring for Kids Foundation transforms the lives of disadvantaged infants, children and teens with physical deformities caused by birth defects, accidents, abuse or disease through the gift of reconstructive surgery and related medical care.
The foundation provides no-cost medical services to patients through Surgery Weekends and clinics. Medical services are donated by doctors, clinicians and other medical professionals.
All of the overhead and administrative expenses for the Fresh Start Caring For Kids Foundation are covered by Fresh Start Surgical Gifts and The Plastic Surgery Foundation, so that 100% of every donation directly benefits the medical needs of our patients.

Special thanks to our food sponsors, Cosi and Nando's Peri-Peri (Lakeview). We greatly appreciate your generous participation and support. We look forward to continuing to strengthen our relationships with our key stakeholders during future Surgery Weekends.
