Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

Our son Joshua was born on September 7, 2004 with a complete bilateral cleft lip, palate and alveolar ridge. Josh endured numerous surgeries as an infant, and will go through several more as he gets closer to having all of his adult teeth mature and come in.  His next big hurdle will be a bone graft surgery, probably happening within the next year.

The Foundation for Faces of Children offers resources to families just like ours to assist with education and resources they may have dealing with the issues that arise from having a child with a cranial facial condition. 

Please consider a donation, no matter how small, to help the Foundation for Faces of Children to continue providing these invaluable resources.  My family and I will be walking for the cause on September 22nd!   This will be our second annual walk, and we are looking forward to many more!

Melanie & Steve Carrara
