The Heads Up!!! Foundation

The Heads Up!!! Foundation recently donated $3,000 to the Cleft and Craniofacial Program at Riley at IU Health.

The gift will pay for the purchase of the “Craniofacial Family Notebook” which is given to parents of newborns at their first clinic visit. The notebook contains valuable educational information about their child’s medical condition and provides a place for parents to record notes about their child’s treatment.

“The families are so appreciative of this resource”, sites Carol Ritter, RN, a pediatric registered nurse with the Cleft and Craniofacial Clinic who heads-up the Craniofacial Family Notebook project. “The notebooks are also provided to parents who have been diagnosed via ultrasound prior to the birth of a child with a cleft or craniofacial condition. These prospective parents say the notebook really helps prepare them for what to expect after their baby is born.”

The check was presented to Doctor Robert J. Havlik, the former Medical Director of the Cleft and Craniofacial Clinic and Chief of the Plastic Surgery Division at the IU School of Medicine by Kelly Turner, the founder and President of the Heads Up!!! Foundation, at Riley at IU Health annual luncheon on November 15, 2012.

The Heads Up!!! Foundation is based out of Medora, Indiana and was established by the Turner family to support health care organizations that care for children with craniofacial conditions. The Cleft and Craniofacial Program at Riley Hospital at IU Health is the major grant recipient of the Heads Up Foundation. This donation brings to $13,500 the amount donated to Riley’s craniofacial program by Heads Up in 2012.

The Cleft and Craniofacial Program thanks the Heads Up!!! Foundation for promoting craniofacial awareness and for their continued support of our patients.
