Review for Fresh Start Surgical Gifts, Carlsbad, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In 2010 my husband and I had the privilege of becoming host parents for Fresh Start Surgical Gifts. Fresh Start preformed two separate reconstructive surgeries at no cost to a then nine year old girl from Ethiopia who had her eye removed due to cancer at age two. These surgeries were a huge transforming experience due to the fact that Adele's left eye socket atrophied for seven years because there was never a prosthesis fit for her following removal of her eye in Ethiopia.

Adele resides with us now permanently and to this day Fresh Start continues to manage Adele's care with all follow up appointments with their surgeon and Ocularist. We cannot imagine what life may have been like for her without all of Fresh Start's brilliant volunteer staff and their generosity by giving her the gift of a prosthetic eye!

Review for Fresh Start Surgical Gifts, Carlsbad, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Fresh Start Surgical gifts provides reconstructive surgery on disadvantaged children from all over the world at no cost. A Fresh Start surgeon preformed extensive eye socket surgery to our daughter who came to my husband and I from Ethiopia. She had cancer to her left eye which had to be removed. She is now wearing a prosthetic eye and is confident and happy once again thanks to the generosity of Fresh Start. We are forever grateful to them.
