Cleft operation – the result brought tears into our eyes.

Leemcer Collage 1Since 5 months my three year old daughter and I, accompany as Rucksack Coach, the young family on their way. Leemcer Zeus was initially not strong enough for surgery. After 4 weeks waiting in Manila, we cheered together for the next X-ray examination. The result brought tears into our eyes. Leemcer’s pneumonia was not yet completely healed. An operation was not possible. The next X-ray examination could take place in not earlier than 4 weeks. The young family decided to return to Bohol and wait there. Would they come back? Would her flight again be sponsored by NCFP? I promised not to stop support until Leemcer Zeus receives his first operation.

On April 30, I brought Leemcer and parents again to Manila. NCFP sponsored the flight. Leemcer was operated by the specialists of NCFP on his cleft lip.

The healing is going very well  and if all goes well Leemcer Zeus will get his cleft palate surgery in 3 to 6 month.
