Ever since the establishing of his plastic surgery practice, Dr. Gary Motykie has consistently remained in touch with various community issues, and made contributions in several ways. He is motivated by the idea of using his skills and experience to provide a healing touch to those in need wherever possible. This passion became a foundation for the establishment of “The Healing Curve,” a nonprofit organization that Dr. Motykie formed in 2008.
Dr. Motykie felt inspired to launch The Healing Curve following his appearance in the episodes of E! Entertainment’s popular TV show Dr. 90210. During the filming of these episodes, Dr. Motykie performed reconstructive breast surgeries to restore the physical and emotional well-being and rebuild the confidence of women who had survived breast cancer.
Key Role of the Organization
The Healing Curve has been set up to perform a key role of providing medical support to women who have beaten breast cancer, but are left to struggle with the post-op challenges of breast tissue loss and scars. This can occur following a mastectomy or breast removal procedure to treat the patient and save her life.
The Healing Curve provides financial assistance and other forms of support to enable these patients undergo corrective surgeries to address the physical deformities that may have occurred as an outcome of cancer, severe injury, previous unsuccessful surgeries, and/or birth deformities.
Financial Support for Breast Reconstruction
The Healing Curve came into being with the primary goal of providing reconstructive surgical procedures to breast cancer survivors. A number of patients who undergo breast cancer surgery may be left feeling inadequate following the primary surgery because they cannot afford secondary procedures to complete the reconstruction and restore the aesthetics. Insurance companies usually cover the initial costs of breast reconstruction, but may not cover secondary surgeries.
This is where The Healing Curve makes effective interventions to help those who do not have the financial means to bear the costs of these secondary procedures. In Dr. Motykie’s own words: “I started The Healing Curve to help those women who have won the battle against breast cancer but have lost their breasts, their femininity and their self-esteem in the process. These women have already been through so much with cancer itself; they deserve the best possible breast reconstruction that plastic surgery can offer.”
Expanding the Scope
Once The Healing Curve organization was on its feet, Dr. Motykie quickly found out that the need for such surgeries extended beyond just the breast cancer survivors. The organization decided to reach out to all survivors who may have suffered a physical deformity arising from an earlier surgery, serious injury or illness, or congenital defects.
Dr. Motykie’s original goal to perform breast cancer procedures on the Dr. 90210 series was to allow people to know how plastic surgery can restore hope in the lives of the patients. However, the show’s overwhelming response led the organization to embrace all patients who had suffered physical deformities due to any reasons, and were facing financial constraints to overcome those deformities through surgery.
