Cristina Changes the Story of Our Patients' Lives Through Nutrition

Nutrition is the first step in a child's cleft treatment journey.

Babies with clefts often can't latch to feed, putting them at a severe and often deadly risk of malnutrition. Worse, these babies can't safely receive the cleft surgery they need to save their lives until they achieve a healthy weight.

That's where Cristina comes in. By partnering with Smile Train, she is able to give patients the nutritional support they need at no cost to their families, changing the story of their lives forever.
