In 2003, The Art of Elysium created Yo Lo Tengo at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to help pediatric male patients that suffer from facial disfigurement and scarring due to medical conditions. This year, 14 boys from ages 7-15 attend an 8 week support program. The goal of the program is to improve self-esteem, communication, empowerment and positive self-image.  The boys graduation culminates with all of them walking a red carpet and signing autographs (being interviewed by Gina Grad) followed by a movie. This day is a momentous day, they are able to show their families and peers what they have learned throughout the course of the group and use it in a real situations..”
