“Barry, Ed and I watched the video all I can say is that you and your team are ANGELS!” says Eugenia McGrath.
“Due in no small part to the values my sensei instilled in me. Thanks!” says Barry Steinberg.
This video is an interview with Dr. Barry and shares about The Ride for Smiles fundraiser which helps children grin again by raising money for the Facing Futures Foundation. For over 15 years, this foundation has focus on the surgical correction of birth defects found in children from remote areas of the world. Because these areas do not have the medical facilities necessary to help them, the Foundation brings each child to Jacksonville, Florida, to allow proper conditions and assemble the best team of doctors needed for the case. Dr. Barry Steinberg is one of the special doctors who performs the surgeries that change peoples lives!
