Hello all! From time to time on my blog I will create posts of awareness. This awareness will come in a type of shout out to businesses, surgeons, websites, etc. that I think might be useful to those of you that read my blog.
My first shout out is to The Cleft Lip & Palate Foundation of Smiles or as I know them www.cleftsmile.org
Cleftsmile.org is an excellent resource in educating people on cleft related topics. The foundation can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.
“The vision of the Cleft Lip & Palate Foundation of Smiles is to provide support for individuals and families with cleft lip and/or palate and other Craniofacial anomalies” (www.cleftsmile.org, 2013).
I think another amazing fact about this organization is CEO and Founder, Rachel Mancuso is a parent of twin children with clefts so you know that the information that you are receiving is not only beneficial but relatable to those of you parents out there that want/need support.
As you can see from the picture, The Cleft Lip & Palate Foundation of Smiles has all kinds of resources to get their name out to the public and I say kudos to them for that!
Anyway, I hope you all check out The Cleft Lip & Palate Foundation of Smiles website and Facebook page. I know I look to it for information and the Facebook page is a great support and encouragement to me personally.
Hi! I found your blog entirely by accident. I think it is GREAT, now that I’ve found it! I really hope you keep blogging and get your foundation…founded! Your blog could make a big difference to another kid going through what you had to as a child and beyond.
My son had his first surgery at the ripe old age of 2 years old – on his eyes, though. Blogs have helped me to find information about what we are all going through. I can’t imagine how hard it was for your mom and dad – no blogs when you were little!!
Take care of your beautiful self and keep up the good work!
Thank you so much for the encouragement! I am glad you enjoyed reading, and that is my hope that this can be a positive outlook for a child going through this or something similar. I am currently writing more blog posts to be on here soon 🙂
