  • Dylan’s Story

    Hi, I’m Dylan and I was born with a Cleft lip and Palate, I am 10. I had my first two operations done when I was 3 and 6 months old, I don’t remember them obviously. I had my bone graft operation done in the Queen Elizabeth hospital in March 2017.

  • My Cleft Story – #3

    My final instalment deals with something that was really quite difficult although it all worked out well in the end. When I was 9 I went back to GOSH for an alveolar bone graft, the first operation I really can remember.
