Mending Kids with a KISS from Paul Stanley

Mending Kids with a KISS from Paul Stanley

About This Campaign

Mending Kids is joining forces with Paul Stanley, the lead singer of legendary rock band KISS in helping children that have the congenital defect, Microtia. Children who are born without an outer ear, or even an ear canal have Microtia, and can suffer from significant hearing loss. Microtia can come in various stages and affects children in different forms. However, the one thing every child with Microtia has in common, is the teasing and torment that results from this deformity. "Children are relentlessly bullied.” This coming from Paul Stanley, who was also born with Microtia and waited over 30 years for his ear to be constructed. He compensated by growing his hair long and even with hearing loss in his right ear, he followed his passion for music and built up his self-confidence. Something he now shares with other children facing Microtia. He encourages them to be strong, and to believe in themselves. Mending Kids and Paul Stanley are absolutely committed to providing three special children with Microtia this spring. Arabella, a precious 4-year old little girl from Canada, Rodrigo, an 8-year old always smiling boy from El Salvador, and another patient we are currently working with who is already almost 21 years old. She has been waiting a long time! Imagine what she has been though already. It's time to make that stop and change her life. These three surgeries total $109,800 when you consider the surgery cost, implants, hearing devices, and surgeon’s fees. But with Dr John Reinisch, the renowned expert in Microtia donating his time for these surgeries, Specialty Surgical Center on Wilshire deeply discounting their fees, Matrix Surgical donating the ear implants and your donations, we wil all make sure these deserving kids receive their surgery and lead a full, healthy life! Your donation today will be used 100% toward funding the remaining costs of these three surgeries! Please join Paul and Mending Kids today and change their lives for good!

Campaign to Support Mending Kids

Mending Kids provides life-changing surgical care to children worldwide. Over the years, thousands of children have received corrective, transformational surgeries that have given them a chance at longer, healthier and happier lives. Most of the surgeries we perform are to correct congenital heart defects, orthopedic abnormalities, severe scoliosis, and significant cranial facial deformities. We also provide quality, personal training to local surgeons in developing countries who want to care for their own children, and we perform surgeries on American children through our Hometown Mission program. In 2014 we deployed 12 teams to 10 different countries and completed 550+ surgeries. In 2015 we hope to break that record. Without contributions from our caring donors, we could not give children the world-class surgical care they deserve.

    Hi from Khaidyn 5 yrs from Collingwood Park Australia, we are currently fundraising for his own right side microtia and atresia reconstructoin surgery with Dr. Reinish and Dr. Roberson. Khaidyn wants to donate his pocket money, because he knows its very hard work when people don't give. What your organisation is doing is nothing short of AWESOME <3 Thank you for showing there is hope :) We hope that somedaythere will be an organisation like this one in australia and not just for microtia but for all rare conditions and for the families who might like us also struggle to find support. Best wishes will donate more as we can :)

      After literally landing from their Southeast Asia tour, Paul Stanley arrived at Specialty Surgical Center to see Rodrigo and Arabella as they came out of surgery. Even with jet-lag, he was determined to be there for them! Major kudos to Paul!

      Paul visits with Arabella's family who is here from Prince Albert Canada. Arabella has double microtia and in order to get her surgery in Canada, she would have waited until she was 10 years old and went through 8-10 surgeries for corrections. With Dr Reinisch's help, she will only have 2 operations!
