The Little Baby Face Foundation (LBFF) transforms the lives of children born with facial deformities through corrective surgery. World-class surgeons and medical providers at the finest facilities in NYC volunteer their time to provide the best corrective surgery and medical care to children and their families who are in financial need worldwide. We arrange travel to and from New York City for children to undergo needed corrective surgical procedures at no expense to the patient or their families.
Since our founding by Dr. Thomas Romo, III and co-founder Lauralouise Duffy-Blatt in 2002, more than 250 children born with facial deformities have had their lives transformed with help from the LBFF. These children, generally to the age of 21, come from communities across the country including: Athens, Alabama; Lochbuie, Colorado; Astoria, New York, Greer, South Carolina; Tulsa, Oklahoma, Kanilua Kona, Hawaii and many other communities. In addition, the Little Baby Face Foundation has served children and their families from around the globe including: Mongolia, Peru, Iraq, Nigeria, Ecuador, Moldova, Philipines and many other countries. The Foundation also provides medical information about facial deformities to families and healthcare providers and supports related research.
