  1. Did you know there is a foundation dedicated to granting funds to people who may not have coverage? They also help out with plastic surgery. This foundation is 100% volunteers and in only 5 years they have granted 13 surgeries. Check out their website and consider attending this years annual event which happens to be in San Diego this year!!! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/wlsfa-california-dreamin-5th-anniversary-fundraiser-tickets-11781236997?ref=ecount To find out about applying for a grant or to get more info on the foundation please check them out here!!! http://www.wlsfa.org/ Some of you may know me as Dr. Callery's support leader. I am also a patient and lifestyle coach! I will be presenting a cooking session which many of you have asked for. The presentation is free for attendees who come to the event. Registration includes 2 full days of classes, sessions, Carnie Wilson presenting an episode of CHOPPED, 2 nights of dinner and dancing...and so much more!!!! Ask me about it, or sign up!! If you register in the next 7 days you will get to be one of the select 20 people who will get to eat the food I prepare!!! Join me!!!
