I’m seeking help. Ever since I was 10 I’ve been looking for help with my teeth. I am now 26 and it seems the older I get the less help there is for me. I don’t make much money but I have been left with the burden of trying to figure out how to pay for surgeries I need but can’t afford. I’m pretty sure my parents did not go through the steps and surgeries needed when I was growing up to help with my cleft lip and teeth. They grew in so horribly, like something you would see in a horror movie. I now have a partial denture that’s hiding the problem and it is not made to be a permanent solution and I’m seeking a permanent solution as this denture won’t last for ever.
I need help sharing my cause because I’m too embarrassed to share on my social media because everyone will know it’s me since there’s not many people with cleft lip I can say my friends know. I’ve kept this part of my lie a huge secret for ever due to being bullied many years as a kid and even an adult.
If there is any way you guys could help share this it would really mean the world for me if this can finally happen for me.
This is under my middle name and last initial because again I’m worried people will see this and know it’s me. My boyfriend of 4 years doesn’t even know this about me. That is how embarrassed I am about my situation. If I can get enough money to start the process i will be excited And open to share with him and have him be apart of this transformation and solution but for now I’m holding back because I just don’t feel comfortable or excited about my situation.
Its hard being a kid with cleft lip and palate but we all can do it. I was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate. And it sucks
Hi, I was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate and in the past 21 years that I've been on this planet, I've never considered reaching out to others who were born with our condition until now. I'm positive that our experiences, as well as perspectives, on living with this condition set us apart from one another and unite us. I am here because I would like to know more about our community.I...
