I emailed you asking if there was anything you could do to help my appearance, I was born with a Cleft Lip and had only had one surgery to repair it, which was when I was a month old.
To my surprise you emailed me back and offered to do my surgery at no charge! I came down from southern Oregon to have the surgery and during the consultation you even offered a chin implant!
I have written this email a couple times through the years and never had the right words to express my sincerest thanks to you and your staff. I will probably never have the ability to communicate to you how much you have changed me, from the outside, in.
Growing up with such an obvious defect was hard. It’s already hard to grow up, but I suffered inside with what was on the outside. My peers rarely let me forget my scar on my lip and my crocked nostrils. My confidence was non-existent. When I emailed you I was desperate for change and perfection.
You evened out my upper lip, improved the appearance of my nose greatly and the chin implant changed my whole face shape and profile! Many people I have met since the surgery don’t even notice my scar at first and it’s not the first thing on my mind anymore when I meet new people.
People have actually told me I am beautiful, and I believe them.
It took awhile for me to gain confidence after my surgery and I feel like it still grows more and more each day. I am so happy to have had the chance to have you be a part of my life. I know I wouldn’t be where I am in life right now if it hadn’t been for you, and your generosity will live with me for the rest of my life.
Thank you so much.*
