Peggy and Katy

When Katy was born with a cleft, it brought her and her mother on an unexpected, globetrotting journey.

Katy and her mother Peggy share how their own struggles and successes with Katy's cleft treatment, lead them to become dedicated Smile Train supporters.

“I grew up in a dentist’s chair, an orthodontist’s chair. I had five total surgeries. At the time, growing up, going through all of those, I hated it. I cried all the time, it was really scary. As I got older, I realized how lucky I was." — Katy
