Chelsea Joy Casipit certainly has a reason to show off her amazing new smile! She recently underwent successful cleft lip surgery at Smile Train partner Noordhoof Craniofacial Foundation Philippines. Chelsea's surgery was performed by expert surgeon Dr. Glenda H. De Villa and the results couldn't be better. One-year-old Chelsea is young enough to never know the torment, pain, and isolation that accompany a life with an unrepaired cleft. Thanks to Smile Train donors and our wonderful partner hospital, Chelsea has been given a second chance at a normal life.
