This July, treatment specialists, support organizations, advocacy groups, and affected individuals and families are joining forces to encourage awareness of cleft and craniofacial conditions for National Cleft & Craniofacial Awareness Month.
We will work to promote awareness throughout July, and we need your help to spread the word as much as possible. We invite you to write a brief narrative of your experiences to be shared as we spread awareness in July and throughout the year. Please send us your practitioner stories and share our flier with your patients and families so they can submit their stories.
Email your story and pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your submission implies consent for the Cleft Palate Foundation and American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association to use all or any part of your story at their discretion for advocacy, education or fundraising purposes in the form of print, visual, electronic or broadcast media. If you include photos, please submit a signed photo release.

Stay tuned to our blog to hear what others are doing nationwide. Please tell us about your activities too so we can feature you online, and let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to hearing and sharing your story as we build greater awareness of cleft lip, cleft palate and craniofacial conditions in the United States.
