The catalyst for Look At Us dates back to the summer of 2002, when our son Robert was born with severe craniofacial differences.

Look At Us is exclusively focused on the physical and emotional well being of children and young adults with craniofacial disorders due to birth anomaly or injury. Education, advocacy and support (including financial assistance to disadvantaged families) are the three pillars upon which LAU is built, and we will be an ever-present voice raising awareness of craniofacial differences. Whether funding reconstructive surgeries domestically and abroad, providing medical devices – like hearing aids – to kids in need, or helping families touched by craniofacial issues navigate the seemingly uncertain roads ahead of them, LAU will remain an invaluable resource and hub of inspiration, empowerment and hope.

Look At Us has in place an alliance of the world’s most outstanding doctors – surgeons, pediatricians, ENT’s – other ancillary providers (including psychologists, occupational therapists and orthodontists), like-minded organizations and donors all assembled to educate, support, counsel and care for craniofacial patients and their families.
To further our mission to be unrelenting in our support of those who suffer from craniofacial differences, Look At Us will work with our alliance to fund direct patient care; to educate and advocate for those with differences; and to provide hearing tests, aids and other medical devices to those who cannot afford them.
