Searching for Past Patients Continued
Joylyn Sampilo had her cleft lip repaired in 2006 and she is on the surgery schedule tomorrow for a lip revision. She lives with her family in a 3 room bamboo hut near the field that her father farms. He grows mainly rice and string beans. Joylyn is a very sweet, confident and animated little girl. She is 4 years old and sang a wonderful rendition of the ABC song that most of us learned in school. Her father told us how much Joylyn has changed since her surgery, before she was quiet and did not want to be with other children. Now she loves to spend time with friends and others that live close by.
