BENEFITING: The Foundation for Faces of Children
ORGANIZER: Tufts Floating Hospital For Children
EVENT: Paces for Faces 2015
We recently found out about this walk at our bi-weekly appointment to the clinic for our baby Victor who was diagnosed with a cleft lip and palate at our routine 20-week ultrasond where our world was deemed to be shattered for approximately two weeks during the grieving of a perfect "normal" baby. However, after joining a few Facebook cleft groups and educating ourselves on this condition, and ultimately after meeting our son on August 31st of this year, we immediately fell in love and our world was made much brighter and not shattered. We are now going through Nasal-Alveolar Molding (NAM) treatment, which is not making Victor very happy but will improve the outcome of his first lip surgery at three months of age, around the end of November/beginning of December. He will then have several more surgeries through his entire teenage years. Please consider donating to this cause and raising awareness of cranio-facial "deformities."
Thanks in advance,
Scott, Kimberly and Victor Nickerson
