Everly's Story:

• Everly is an adorable 4-month-old baby who is very sweet and loves her family, especially her two big sisters.

• Everly was born with a cleft palate.

• A cleft palate is an opening or split in the roof of the mouth that occurs when the tissue doesn’t fuse together during development in the womb.

• Everly will travel to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital several times this year. She will see several specialists that include a nurse practitioner, speech/language pathologist, plastic surgeon, and an ear nose and throat physician.

• Doctors plan on surgically closing the hole in the roof of her mouth when Everly is between 9-12 months old.

• Currently, Everly requires a special type of bottle to feed from. This special bottle prevents choking and allows her to get the nutrition she needs.

• Everly may require several more surgeries depending on how her recovery goes and how well she develops after her first surgery.

• Everly is very prone to ear infections due to her condition and may require future surgery in both ears.

• Everly will be adopted as a Sparrow to Lone Pine Elementary School. Lone Pine students will have the opportunity to work hard to raise money for Everly’s ongoing treatment through sponsored community service.
