Dr. Thomas Gonzales and his wife Delia recently attended the Annual Butterfly Ball held on October 25, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency in La Jolla. This event raised funds to providing life changing surgery, dental work, laser treatments, and speech therapy to disadvantaged children suffering with various physical deformities.
Fresh Start Surgical Gifts transforms the lives of disadvantaged infants, children, and teens with physical deformities caused by birth, accidents, abuse, or disease through the gift of reconstructive surgery and other healthcare services. The program has improved the lives of over 7,300 children to date—all of which have been given a second chance and increased self-confidence. Many children have gone on to be leaders in their communities as a result of the opportunities opened to them during their time in the Fresh Start program. Some of our patients are now doctors, nurses, and giving back to Fresh Start as volunteers!
“This event was a huge success and we are happy to support such a good cause for children,” said Dr. Gonzales.
