Luke contacted CLAPA because he wanted to share a short message with others in the UK Cleft Community…
Hi, I’m Luke.
I was born with a cleft lip on both sides. I am 20 years old and I have had so many operations.
I’ve seen so many people being upset or feeling down because they have a cleft but I don’t it doesn’t really bother me and it shouldn’t really bother other people. I say be proud to have a cleft lip because it shows that we are strong ? – and my family are very proud too!
Just stay strong and you will be fine, I promise. Remember, we are all special and we are unique! ?
