Lucky number 7!! For the seventh year in a row, we are participating in the Paces for Faces Walk to raise money for the Foundation for Faces of Children, an organization started over 25 years ago by Dr. John Mulliken, a world-class cleft surgeon who we were so fortunate to meet on the beginning of our unexpected journey down this road back in 2009. This year is particularly special to us because just a couple of weeks before the walk Elan is headed back to the OR, once again under Dr. Mulliken's care. It's a relatively minor procedure, but a reminder to us that these kids go through a lot throughout their entire lives, and need the ongoing support of organizations like FFC.
We've been so grateful and humbled by the support all of our friends and family have shown us the last six years. You have helped us raise more than $20,000 for this organization that is so near to hearts. We love returning to this walk year after year and hope that our participation will help Elan stay connected to a community of friends who can provide him support as he faces the challenges that come with growing up with a craniofacial disorder. We hope you'll consider contributing to our efforts again and supporting this small but much-needed charity that provides support to families just like ours.
