OUR MISSION: Is to help bolster children’s self-esteem through providing financial support to families with children that are dealing with allied medical related health issues.
Children’s Body-Image Foundation believes that all children should feel good about themselves. We are advocates for all children. We strive to help children build self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-acceptance by raising body image awareness and helping to educate the public. We help accomplish this by promoting & providing educational as well as financial resources for families. Our organization highlights the fact that certain medical conditions and traumas can also have a negative effect on a child’s sense of self, both physical and or psychological. Some of the conditions we serve are: clubfeet, pediatric cancers, alopecia (hair loss), amputation, body dysmorphia, eating disorders, and other related conditions. Allied healthcare services needs vary and include such services as: professional counseling, braces/supportive devices (durable medical equipment/DME), physical therapy rehabilitation, prosthetics, and other related services. Helping children establish healthy habits that include nutrition and fitness education are also key components in developing a lifetime of better health.
