Patient Benefit Foundation was founded in 2014.There was a clear need that had been left unaddressed by other charitable organizations.

By 2016, Board Members and organizational activities had been finalized, informational materials had been developed and Patient Benefit Foundation began recruiting surgeons and facilities to help with the cause. A Gala introducing Patient Benefit Foundation was held to formally introduce the organization to Houston, Texas and surrounding communities. The year 2017 saw the organization begin performing surgeries with several participating surgeons and many medical facilities. By the end of the year, Patient Benefit Foundation had saved patients an estimated $220,000. No patient was required to contribute financially. As Patient Benefit Foundation begins 2018, news of the organization and its’ work continues to spread. But, we need your help.
