After surgery, many children require follow up care. Laura (pictured top) was born with a cleft lip and palate and has been a patient her whole life. With her mom Nancy, she first visited Operation Smile Colombia when she was just two days old. Over the years, Laura’s had five surgeries, continuous dental and orthodontic work, and ongoing speech therapy. She’s grown up to be a vibrant teenager and she’s still part of the Operation Smile family.
