In January of 2021 the COANIQUEM Burned Children Foundation mourned the loss of one of our most ardent supporter, and husband of long-time Treasurer Carolyn Schuetz.
Since our beginnings in 1998, Lloyd Baysdorfer was a champion for our cause and was always there to help on our fundraisers and to co-host gatherings with his beloved Carolyn at their home. He made some of the best cookies in the world!
In our previous email we announced that Lloyd's son Christoph had made a memorial donation of $10,000 in honor of his father. We are pleased to tell you that we are well on our way to doubling that contribution. Thank you to all of you who have supported this effort already. We are continuing our efforts to raise funds for this equipment!
COANIQUEM is extremely excited about this revolutionary new treatment for scar tissues. This new procedure will be used to keep scar tissue more soft and pliable by creating micro-perforations in the scar; and will promote healthy tissue around and beneath it. This will speed up the recovery of the child and the possibilities of reducing scarring are wonderful.
Our goal is to raise $50,000 towards purchasing the equipment and we have raised $22,000 so far. If you would like to help us with this project, please donate through GlobalGiving today!
For 43 years, COANIQUEM has been treating and healing children who have been burned, many of them experiencing severe burn on their faces and necks. This treatment will be invaluable in treating these more challenging burns. These are the scars that people see first!
