I am a 48 year old disabled woman who is a mother of three wonderful grown up children; two boys and girl in the middle. I am in a second marriage relationship. My husband was born with a cleft palet and several other areas which needed surgeries as a child. We feel very close to this cause and hope this can help in any way possible to help those who suffer with this birth defect. We know how important a difference it can make in a child’s life to have the surgery needed to live a more fulfilling life and more functional life also.
