Meet Nathaniel

Born with Treacher-Collins Syndrome, Nathaniel Newman has faced countless challenges and more than 20 surgeries in his short eight years, in order to correct the severe cranio-facial problems that are a part of his condition. While receiving treatment at the Institute for Reconstructive Plastic Surgery (IRPS) at NYU Medical Center, Nathaniel has been the epitome of hope, courage, and strength. We met Nathaniel through the National Foundation for Facial Reconstruction (NFFR), yet another organization that received a donation from Teammates. NFFR helps fund IRPS, making it possible for other children like Nathaniel to receive the care they need. Nathaniel and his family were guests at our Teammate Appreciation Parties in 2006, when he met Jay Leno, and in 2010.
