Linda Suarez Loor
Age: 17 years
Linda Suarez Loor was born with severe bilateral cleft lip & palate. Her mother heard about GSF on the local news and came looking for help. She underwent her first corrective surgery at the age of 3 months. Since then, Linda has undergone multiple revision operations to enhance the appearance of her lip & nose.
The cleft 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 since her first operation to evaluate her progress.
Presently, Linda is a healthy and vibrant 17 year-old young woman whose life has been forever changed. She has a very positive outlook on life as a result of her normal appearance.
