Stitches of Love
Ms. Li, Chi-Chieh, a 22-year-old college student, was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate. Ms. Li immigrated to Brazil with her parents when she was young. Ms Li has been through several reconstructive surgeries in Brazil since she was little.
Unfortunately, they all ended up with poor results. Due to that, Ms Li decided to come back to Taiwan having secondary correction surgeries of her nose deformity and orthodontic treatments. The surgeries were done by Dr. Philip Chen at Chang Gung Craniofacial Center. Ms Li and her family were very happy with the great result. To express their gratitude, Ms Li’s grandmother spent 2 months making coin purses and tea cup bags to NCF as charitable products. Ms Li's grandmother hopes that more cleft patients could be benefited like her grandchild through the money being raised.
