#FundraisingFriday – Zidane’s First Birthday!

July 28, 2017

Happy First Birthday (for yesterday!) Zidane!!!⠀

“Zidane was diagnosed with a unilateral complete cleft lip and palate during our 16 week gender scan when we found out we were having a boy. It was a lot to take in, learning he would have to endure numerous operations until roughly the age of 18. However, once the initial shock settled we were just excited to meet our beautiful boy and welcomed the challenges that would come with him (cleft or no cleft!!).⠀

Seeing him cope with the two operations he has had so far has made us so proud of him; he is a real champ!⠀

CLAPA provided us with his very first bottles which help babies with clefts to drink their milk as they mostly don’t have the ability to suckle. We continue to get all his feeding equipment from CLAPA as well as information and support. So we would like to show our appreciation and enable them to continue helping other families like us.⠀

We are requesting donations in place of any birthday gifts for Zidane, so please give what you can and please don’t feel tempted to get him a gift as well as this!! Your support is all we ask for. Any donations would be greatly appreciated – Thank you so much.”
