Our son Anthony III was born on 9/1/15 with a cleft lip and palate. Something we became aware of at our 20 week ultrasound. I always knew what a cleft lip was but never really knew how, why or what caused this. After learning that he would be born with a cleft lip and palate my husband and I immediately started researching doctors and hospitals and that is when we found Dr. Flores at NYU. From day 1 we instantly felt the connection with Dr. Flores and the entire team at NYU and knew that is where we belonged and that our son would be in amazing hands. It was also at this point that we decided it was time to educate the world about the most common birth defect that 1 in every 700 children born face. MyFace is an incredible organization that helps the families of these children that are born with clefts and other craniofacial disorders. They provide housing (during surgeries), many support groups and a tremendous resource of programs for the children. Please join me in walking to raise awareness to all craniofacial disorders and to support an amazing organization that I hold dear to my heart.
