How to Qualify
Certain criteria must be met in order to qualify for services:
RECONSTRUCTIVE PLASTIC SURGERY
One of the primary aim's of CSPSERF is to assist children in financial need who would benefit from reconstructive plastic surgery. Children who suffer from physical abnormalities and other disfiguring conditions could be eligible for services free of charge. The program's aim is to serve those children who are uninsured or underinsured, bridging the gap for those families who could not otherwise afford to pay for the procedure.
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
Although most of the conditions are not life-threatening, the children who are afflicted with these conditions may suffer from low-self esteem and feel different, self-conscious. At CSPSERF, we strive to the ultimate goal of giving children the gift of hope. The hope that the child can look like their peers and live a more productive and healthy life, away from the teasing and bullying that comes with looking different.
Note: A CSPSERF Surgery Review Committee review and screens applications, following which recommendations will be made to CSPSERF's full Board. Ultimately, the Board will decide which families and/or children will be receipients of services under the Foundation's program aimed at providing reconstructive surgery to the child in need.
