Steven Robert Oral Surgery Fund

Steven is a vibrant, loving, sweet, handsome and unbelievably BRAVE second grader who was born with a physical disformity (cleft lip and palate). He has had several successful surgeries to repair the clefts (some covered by insurance, some by funds graciously raised by family and friends in the past). This summer Steven's parents have had several consultations with plastic surgery, oral surgeon, orthodontist and dental teams to devise a plan for the extensive repairs needed to fix his teeth and upper lip. Today he was denied a palate expander that insurance won't cover. We are reaching out to family and friends for any assistance they are able/willing to give to help us make this possible for a wonderful little boy. The oral disformities have and continue to effect his speech and chewing. Funds raised will go directly to the palate expander cost and anything beyond our goal will go to past, present and future costs of Steven's medical needs. Any contributions (monetary, prayers, shares, well wishes) are wholeheartedly appreciated by the entire Howland family.

We love you more than you'll ever know Stevie!
