United To Help Children… Transforming Lives Since 1991
For over 25 years, the nonprofit organization Fresh Start Surgical Gifts has been successful in bringing together talented, caring medical professionals to help children with deformities feel better about themselves, and be more comfortable in society.

GIVE AND FOREVER TRANSFORM SOMEONE’S LIFE
100% of contributions go directly to medical programs
Fresh Start is a San Diego-based regional, nonprofit charity for children. Their purpose is helping children with deformities transform their lives through long-term reconstructive surgery and ongoing care. As an organization that helps children, when Fresh Start accepts a patient, they make a commitment to maintain a long-term medical relationship when necessary and appropriate.
“Saying thank you may not be enough, but that is all I have. You helped me regain my life, and you have made me see that for every problem that is in the world. There is someone who will always help you get back up on your feet. Someday, I’ll be one of the many great surgeons helping, so save a spot for me.” ~ DANIEL, age 17
We Are Part of Their Journey
Generous Support Is Greatly Needed… Change a Life Today
Fresh Start Surgical Gifts helps children with physical deformities through the gift of reconstructive services. Sponsoring a child is the most powerful way we can help transform a life.
One of the many reasons our founder, April Iannazzone, chose this charity is that 100% of each donation directly benefits the children they serve. They are one of the top child charities in the nation!
Remarkable Before & Afters
Our Hearts Beat for These Kids
Your med spa has created before & after stories highlighting how treatments have impacted the lives of your patients. Let’s help Fresh Start create these transformational stories as well. Just like your medical spa, Fresh Start has done some amazing transformations that have changed the lives of some pretty incredible children. Here are just a few of their success stories…
Ramses - A Long Time Patient
Ramses was born with a condition called amelogenesis imperfecta, a tooth development disorder. This condition causes teeth to have abnormal coloration and take on an unusually small, pitted or grooved form. The teeth are also prone to rapid wear and breakage. These symptoms made it difficult for Ramses to eat, and he was often in pain. Because of how his condition was perceived, Ramses rarely smiled and found it difficult to be in public.
Over the course of 6 years Ramses attended more than 60 dental clinics. He underwent cosmetic surgery to achieve the beautiful smile he has now. His dental treatment included braces, therapeutic head-gear, a surgery to realign his jaw line, regular dental hygiene visits, and finally in March of 2014 he received porcelain veneers.
“I now have the confidence to walk up to girls; I would not have done so before”
(Translated from Spanish)
Through it all, Dr. Al A. Fallah, DDS, Cosmetic Dentistry has been by Ramses’ side, providing him with free dental care in San Diego and restoring his smile at no cost. Ramses is now more confident, no longer hides his smile, and is a proud reason why we chose Fresh Start.
Eleanor - A Patient Since 1994
Born with a hair nevus (giant mole), a potentially fatal congenital disease, Eleanor faced a 10% risk of her disease degenerating into cancer. The giant mole covered her entire upper back and upper chest, as well as large areas of both buttocks and thighs. When she was a baby, Eleanor's mother Roza took her to Moscow to see a skin specialist, only to be told that there was nothing that could be done and that Eleanor would likely be dead by the age of 10.
Luckily, Roza was the director of an orphanage from which several children were being adopted by American families through the Global Children’s Organization. A doctor from Palm Springs took up Eleanor’s cause and got her to the USA to receive treatment. Her first 6 nevus removal surgeries were performed at Harbor UCLA Medical Center in Torrance, California.
In May of 1994, Eleanor became a patient of Fresh Start, receiving free cosmetic surgery for kids. Eleanor would need many more surgeries over the ensuing years. Since 1994 Eleanor has made countless trips to San Diego and has received numerous surgeries and other treatments with Fresh Start, such as nevus removal.
She received her last treatment from in 2007 - proof that Fresh Start’s reconstructive surgery stories are not bound by time, but by results. We are so proud to be a part of this cause.
