Having a child with a birth defect can feel lonely at times. Dylan's Smile was created to provide an outlet for support to families who are on a journey of multiple surgeries and treatments for a facial defect like cleft lip and cleft palate. At Dylan's Smile they understand that having surgery can cause fear and anxiety for parents and children alike. Their Beary Brave program works to put "bear hugs" around those fears, ease anxiety and provide comfort. Through Beary Brave, they partner to raise money for teddy bears to present to children having surgery for a craniofacial defect.
