Lulu at age 7, before any surgeries.
The most recent state of her nose.
My sister was born with cleft palate, leaving the septum of her nose completely unformed. Lulu has now undergone 5 major surgeries over the course of 8 years with the goal to correct her deformities of the mouth and nose. Unfortunately, some of her nasal surgeries did more damage than good; hence, my sister has been in search of a doctor with the ability to completely correct previous work and construct a septum in order to finally give her the final product she deserves. Although most of her dental surgeries have been completed, due to my sister's geographical location and the current state of her nose, it has been extremely difficult to find work, despite her degrees and talents, and start the next phase of her life as an adult. Lulu has been successful in finding a wonderful surgeon with a new approach to her necessary surgeries; however, insurance will not cover the cost because it rules it as a "cosmetic" surgery rather than a vital one; moreover, our family can simply not afford to pay for this final process. Lulu is 27 now with her life ultimately on pause; Lulu has met with the doctor, and she is hoping to undergo these last surgeries as soon as possible. We would be eternally grateful for any donation that we could contribute to the cost of her surgeries that will correct previous work, as well as, construct an entire septum.
