About the Founder

I am a mother of 3 wonderful children. I have a wonderful husband Alfred Sr.. We have been together for 10 wonderful years.  I have a beautiful little girl name Rose. She is five years old.  She is a wonderful big sister and very outgoing. My twins Alfred Jr. and Michael (3 yrs old) were born with Cleft Lip and Palate. Alfred was born with Unilateral Cleft Lip and Palate and has gone through 11 surgeries to repair his Craniofacial Differences.He is such a happy boy and brings such love to others.  Michael was born with Bi Lateral Cleft Lip and Palate, Michael has also gone through 12 surgeries to repair his Craniofacial Differences. They have gone through many stages of surgeries in the last three years.  It is because of Alfred Jr. and Michael that I created the Cleft Lip and Palate Foundation of Smiles and over the past 3 1/2 years we have grown to over 25,000 wonderful families. I hope we can help you get support and answers you are looking for on your journey ahead and we look forward building relationships with our patients and families. I truly enjoy reaching out to others and getting to know our wonderful families. Everyday is a battle for our families, but at the end of the day our patients and families know we are always here for them every step of the way.  – Rachel Mancuso
