THE STORY:

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!  Team For Jake's Sake is walking to help raise funds for the Foundation for Faces of Children.  Our son Jacob was born with a cleft lip and palate in June of 2011.  This diagnosis was a surprise at his birth, and needless to say, we were very overwhelmed at first!  He underwent his lip and palate repairs in late 2011 and mid 2012 and did wonderfully.  This year we are celebrating a fantastic year for Jake, filled with health, growth, and lots of fun for our amazing little two year old!  He continues to make us laugh and smile everyday!  He is such an active, confident, and social little boy.  We are forever in debted to Dr. Meara, Childrens, and the foundation for all of the hard work and support they provided to our family through this time.  Jacob's journey is far from over, but it eases the anxiety to know we are lucky enough to have such great resources at our finger tips to guide us along the way :)

This is our 3rd year participating in the FFFC walk to raise funds for this wonderful foundation who provides support to familes of children with cranio facial conditions, including cleft lip and palate.  Over the past two years, our team has proudly raised over $6,000 for the foundation.  The funds raised by the foundation from events such as this one, have helped produce a feeding video (released this year!) to assist in educating families and providers regarding how to feed children born with cranio facial differences.  The video is being widely distributed and is helping to ensure that no child will starve because he/she was born with a birth defect!  Funds from this years walk will help, in part, to distribute this video around the world!

Our team walks to raise awareness and give back to a foundation who helps families of cleft affected children just like ours.  It's also our way of keeping Jacob and our family connected to this large network of invaluable supports.  We would never have done as well through it all without the help and support of the resources around us.  Any support for the foundation is much appreciated so that other famillies can receive that same support :)
