It's the 20th anniversary of Paces for Faces and we are walking for the eighth year in a row! We 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. We first participated in this walk when Elan was just 8 weeks old and hadn't yet had a single surgery. This year, he's 7 (going on 15), a veteran of 5 surgeries, and still the same sweet, resilient, and handsome guy he was that first walk in 2009.
We've been so grateful and humbled by the support all of our friends and family have shown us the last 8 years. 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.
