Hello, my name is Antonela and I was born with severe Cleft lip and palate as a baby. I am visiting an orthodontist for 17 years now and I have my braces on for 11 years. It was very hard to stay strong with all the bullying in elementary and highscool. Until now I had 6 surgeries since birth and I am having my 7th surgery this year in a couple of months. Since I am limited with working because of my status (also had an upper jaw surgery last year) I can't afford some of the things for this incoming surgery and aftercare. My parents are divorced, mom is unable to work because of her arm and my father works in construction. I would like to collect some donations for supplies such as car gas so I can travel to regular weekly check ups, a new better mixer, healthy liquid protein food since I will eat with difficulty after the surgery (only liquid for a couple of weeks), some medical bills that the insurance doesn't cover and permanent makeup for my upper lip to cover my scars. Hope you all can help me get through this. Any donation will be very helpful!
