Kids like Joseph have long journeys ahead of them. They are counting on caring people like you to help them receive the care they need to restore their brightest smile!
As a medical provider, I’ve seen firsthand the miraculous restoration of hundreds of kids affected by cleft and craniofacial conditions. It’s familiar to me, but for a new parent this kind of diagnosis is overwhelming and heartbreaking.
I still remember Joseph as an infant when we started 4 months of weekly visits to mold his jaw and nose into a better position, so his first surgery to repair the lip could be as successful as possible. Then he had his second surgery at 12 months of age to close the palate. This was really just the beginning.
Joseph is now 10 years old and he has 10 more years of treatment. He just got his first set of braces off this month after having a bone graft surgery to repair his gum line, and may endure further surgery and orthodontics before his high school graduation.
