2013 Mission coming SOON!!!

HI all!  The next combined surgical and speech mission with International Children's Surgical Foundation will again be to Dipolog City, Mindanoa, Philippines March 17-29, 2013!  We will being seeing children who have had their cleft palates repaired on previous mission for 2 weeks of intensive speech therapy!  Linda Rollert, a Speech Pathologist who works on the Cleft Palate Team at Kaiser Permanente in Denver, Colorado, will be joining Theresa this year!

Plans are already underway to get children scheduled to be in Dipolog for the speech therapy!  We will again be working to add daily (maybe- if the technology works in out favor) BLOG updates and photos of our speech therapy and surgical mission with the INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN'S SURGICAL FOUNDATION (  Dr. Geoff William's, founder and Plastic Surgeon will again be working with his Filipino team members (nurses, anesthesiologists, and support staff) to provide free surgery for children with unrepaired cleft lips and/or palates. 

We encourage you to check out the ICSF website and support this amazing program.  If you would like more information directly from Theresa regarding the speech therapy portion of the mission, you can email her at:!
