My name is Sarah Graham and I was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate- all of my surgeries were held at CHOP. Being born with a facial anomaly has allowed me to have an openness and be more emphatic to others. As a little girl I dreamed of walking back into CHOP as a nurse and not a patient. After hard work, I was able to fulfill that goal. Being a part of Philly Phaces has given me a purpose- I strive to help other families and children have a sense of hope; to guide them; and encourage them that "differences" are what makes us stand out from within.
