Despite fighting on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, legislation in Washington is being considered to address surprise medical denials.

One plan would set arbitrary price caps and deny doctors and hospitals fair rates for critical medical procedures. Doing so would force many to close their doors and threaten your access to quality health care.

Doctors, hospitals and nurses in New Jersey need your help. Contact your member of Congress using the form below. Let them know we should stop surprise medical bills by making insurance companies pay, not cutting rates for our health care providers.

NJ Craniofacial Center’s 10th Annual Gala!

Dear Friends,

We hope and pray that you and your family are doing well and staying safe!

Due to the continuation of the current health climate, The NJ Craniofacial Center will be postponing the Annual Gala to a new date of Tuesday October, 13, 2020 at The Park Savoy Estate.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding! We thank those who have already purchased tickets and donated to the event. We are very grateful! If this change in date affects your ability to attend the event, we hope we can still count on your support!

The NJ Craniofacial Center’s Gala helps to benefit Developing Faces Organization, Operation Smile and the Foundation of Morristown Medical Center. These great organizations help to underwrite the cost of the Gala so that 100% of your gift will go directly to helping children and families overcome craniofacial challenges. Among the types of help your generosity supports, we are hoping to be able to reschedule Developing Faces mission trip to Guatemala this year. As you can well imagine, we anticipate a tremendous increase in demand for our services as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic will be felt for years to come.

Thank you for being a critical part of NJ Craniofacial Center and New Jersey’s caring community. Let us pray for those whose health and livelihood have been directly impacted by the pandemic and also the millions who, indirectly, will be impacted in numerous other ways.

Sincerely,

The NJ Craniofacial Team
