TF Biologics is slated to receive the 2023 Corporate Humanitarian Award at Mission Plasticos’ annual Celebration of Global Friendships: Emerald City event on September 9 in Newport Beach, Calif. Mission Plasticos has been providing reconstructive surgery, training local medical professionals, and supporting ongoing research focused on improving standards of care for more than two decades. 

Medical volunteers and philanthropic supporters, including MTF Biologics, enable Mission Plasticos to provide free allograft tissue for reconstructive breast surgery. This ensures access to surgery for women regardless of their economic situation, organization officials say.

“At MTF Biologics, we are committed to advancing healthcare through innovative solutions and impactful collaborations, and are proud of our work with Mission Plasticos, an organization that shares our vision of making a positive difference in the world,” says Joe Yaccarino, CEO of MTF Biologics. “As the 2023 Corporate Humanitarian Honoree, we are truly honored to be recognized for our efforts.”

“Together,” Yaccarino says, “we are addressing the challenges to improve the lives of women during their difficult journey with breast cancer, empowering them to lead healthier, happier, and more fulfilling lives.”

Susan Williamson, executive director at Mission Plasticos, also spoke out about the gala, commenting: “Without corporations like MTF Biologics and their philanthropic investments, we would not be able to provide treatment to as many patients as we currently do. Their dedication to ensuring that every woman receives a full journey of care is a quality that we at Mission Plasticos deeply appreciate and for which we are immensely grateful.”
