Linda Suarez Loor
Age: 17 years
Linda Suarez Loor was born with severe bilateral cleft lip & palate. Her mother heard about the foundation on the local news and came looking for help. She underwent her first corrective surgery at age of 3 months. Since then, Linda has been through multiple revisional operations to enhance the appearance of the lip & nose.
The care has been life changing for Linda and her mother who has been extremely committed to caring for Linda. Linda’s mother put herself through medical school to become a pathologist and has brought Linda to each GSF mission from the time of her first surgery to the present day to evaluate her progress.
At present, Linda is a healthy and vibrant 17 year-old young lady whose life has been forever changed. She has a very positive outlook on life as a result of her normal appearance.
