The Newsome Twosome's story - Shriners Hospitals for Children – Cincinnati

The Newsome Twosome’s story

It was a bittersweet moment when we were told our twin boys would both be born with a cleft. The day after our sweet boys were born, I posted on Facebook and announced to everyone that the boys were born with cleft lip and one also had a cleft palate. Once I made the post, a friend’s brother, who is a Shriner, saw it and immediately said, “Shriners Hospitals for Children can help.” He met me at the hospital, we filled out the paperwork and the rest – is history! We arrived in Cincinnati just a few months later. The staff was amazing! They made what was a very difficult time so much easier. We can never truly thank Shriners and Shriners Hospitals for Children – Cincinnati for all they have done. Words and even actions will never be able to show the world the change they have made by providing our sweet boys with a better quality of life!
