Victor is a shy 10-year-old with a smile and warm personality. Victor was accompanied to the clinic by his grandmother. As soon as he walked through the doors, the local staff paused to greet him. He was introduced to us as "Mr. Sunshine" and after a few minutes with him, we discovered why. His smile and talkative nature brightened the room. Inteplast operated on Victor a few years back but today he was here to accompany his nephew Diego who was being evaluated for a cleft lip operation. He spoke proudly of how he took care of his nephew and was accompanying him since he himself had been operated by Interplast. It was great being able to meet a former Interplast patient who trusts us with the nephew he watches over and protects.
