Raised by 2 people in 1 month
Each year more than 100,000 children are born with a craniofacial condition.  These same children are among the least accepted and understood in society.  We want to change that and are asking for your help. 

We are proud to be the organizers of the Annual
Alexa’s Craniofacial Awareness Charity Dinner; a charity Dinner Event to benefit Children’s Craniofacial Association, or CCA ( www.ccakids.org). Our 7th Annual Event will be held in September 29th 2018 at the Antigua Event Center in Riverbank California.  Our Dinner and Comedy Show will be featuring Celebrity Comedy Central Comedian... CASH LEVY!

CCA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that helps families with the financial burden that comes along with having a child born with a Craniofacial Anomaly. These needs include surgery and travel expenses. CCA provides much needed financial and emotional support to families worldwide.  They also put on an Annual Family Retreat & Educational Symposium. 

This retreat is LIFE CHANGING and reaches hundreds of families per year, and growing!! These Family Retreats are a special time for these children who stand out for reasons they want to hide.  One time a year they are guaranteed to feel “normal”.  They are surrounded by others who feel the same way.  They are seen for who they are, not what they look like.  The friendship and bonds built between these children is priceless.  The support we get as parents from other parents who attend, dealing with the same struggles we do, it absolutely what keeps us strong.  No words can do justice to what these Family Retreats mean to us.  Unfortunately so many families are not able to attend due to financial hardships from the medical needs of their child.  CCA has scholarships to send families to the retreats.  We are raising money for these scholarships to send more families to the Annual Family Retreat.  It costs $1000. to send one family.  

As parents of children with and without a craniofacial condition, we have made it our mission to raise awareness on behalf of Alexa and all children born with facial differences.   Alexa and our family have been featured in local newspapers, and we are active in the special needs community in our area and beyond.   In 2007 when Alexa was born we had no idea the journey we were about to embark on.  After I began this awareness and acceptance campaign I was asked to be a contact from local and surrounding area hospitals, so when a child was born with a Craniofacial anomaly they would have someone to reach out to.  It has been a blessing to be able to comfort other families and guide them to CCA for the help and support they need beyond what I could provide.
