Smile for a Child 2007 Grant
Updated: Jun 24, 2019
In 2007, one large grant was given to Brittnee Rosser. A previous grant recipient, she was granted another gift from the foundation to fund orthodontic services in the office of Dr. Michael Steffen. These orthodontics procedures would prepare Ms. Rosser for later facial surgeries she would require because of her cleft lip and palate condition.
Brittnee got connected to the foundation when a friend told her mom about it. She said the foundation was the "Make a Wish for cleft babies." She was so excited to be chosen as a candidate to receive this grant and to talk with Dr. Smith. She couldn't believe they wanted to raise money and give it to her for treatment. She thought it was so cool and really special.
