I was born with cleft lip and palate along with my triplet brother and sister; our Mother also has the condition. I've been very fortunate to have great surgery over the years leaving me with just a small lip scar and a tiny hole that goes from the top of my mouth directly into my nose; but nothing that any one notices. Good surgery makes all the difference, good surgery means being able to speak, eat and drink normally, good surgery enables a person to feel confident. This opportunity to fundraise for Cleft feels like a chance not to be missed.
