Frankie Flora is a young, charismatic, charitable boy from New York. On April 16th, 2009, Frankie was tragically and horrifically attacked by a pit bull, unprovoked. 

His grevious injuries inspired the Frankie Flora Bill (Senate Bill S2494A), which liability for medical costs resulting from a dog bite or bites.

Things looked grim. Frankie’s had 4 sections of his head removed, down to the base of his skull. He was operated on, received donated tissue until his own flesh and tissue would be able to repaired itself.

Frankie lost massive amounts of nerves tissue, and glands in his face. His left and right cheeks were  ripped open. He has partial hearing loss, no feeling in his pointer finger. He's still a survivor, though. And we're with him every step of the way!

Despite the constant surgeries and Frankie trying to adjust to his life, he still has the time to help children in similar or worse predicaments. He's an ambassador for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals! He is force of nature, bringing joy and helping raising fund for others.

As sobering as the thought is, we're not sure when the next procedure is. Unfortnately, very little of medical expense is overed by his insurance. These expenses quickly spiral out of control and out of our hands, all to Frankie's detriment.

Frankie is growing up so fast, and with that, he faces struggles that every young man does through and this can be very problematic matching surgeries with his growth. 

We're asking for you to help in any way you can. Donate, share Frankie's story to your friends and family, every little bit helps!

Together with your love and support, we can give Frankie the quality of life that every child deserves!

Thank you,
Maria Flora (Frankie's Mother)
