BENEFITING: Operation Smile
EVENT DATE: Dec 10, 2013
Without a critical surgery at birth, my husband's smile and the ability to sing could have never developed. He was the recipient of cleft lip surgery, and I want to pass it on with supporting the surgery of another child. This fundraiser is in honor of him.
Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft. One in 10 of those children will die before their first birthday. The children who survive are often unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. In some places, they are shunned and rejected. And in too many cases, their parents can't afford to give them the surgeries they need to live a productive life.
This issue is SO dear to my heart because I know the impact it has! I know that there are so many kiddos that have a voice and a smile with no opportunity to receive the medical attention they need, yet Operation Smile that makes these surgeries happen.
It makes me cry just thinking about it!
When I found out about Operation Smile, I knew that I needed to pass it on and help a little boy or girl get a life-altering surgery.
