Karson was born with a facial hemangioma, a non-cancerous tumor that is reddish in color. At the time of birth it appeared to be a bruise on his nose, but within about two weeks it changed dramatically and started to swell and turn bright red. Within the next two weeks it continued to swell and eventually split open one side of his nose. Karson could not begin reconstructive surgery until the hemangioma regressed at age three.


Thanks to you, Karson was able to travel to the craniofacial center, for the much needed skin grafts and surgeries to rebuild his nose. He is now a smiling little boy who has the confidence to tackle the world.

Karson is moving on up!

Thank you, Our Friends, for helping Karson and

all the children of FACES throughout the years.

Your continued help is essential.
