Welcome!  This site aims to inform and offer support to families and patients going through the Rigid External Distraction (RED) procedure for midface advancements. Whether you are currently dealing with RED, are a survivor yourself, or just want to learn more about the procedure, I hope that you find this website helpful.

If you have any suggestions for the site, need more information, or just want to chat, please contact me! I love hearing from you all!
