I consider it a privilege to support the mission of Healing The Children because I understand that correcting facial defects can change the trajectory of children’s lives, says, Dr. Stong

  • the Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) and the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) and the National Domestic Violence Project, including the Faces of Honor and International Assistance programs.

“I consider it a privilege to support the mission of Healing The Children because I understand that correcting facial defects can change the trajectory of children’s lives,” says, Dr. Stong.

Dr. Stong share’s a personal philosophy of preserving the unique identity of patients, performing an array of facial cosmetic surgery and non-surgical cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. The team’s understanding of the social stigma and developmental concerns associated with babies and children born with facial defects and congenital anomalies make them a perfect team.

Healing the Children focuses single-mindedly on helping underserved children secure the urgent medical care that they need. To date, the non-profit organization has made a difference in the lives of approximately 250,000 children in over 95 countries.
