Following an emergency C-section, Gabriela’s mother, Katherine, was shocked to see that her new baby was missing part of her face. Gabriela was born with a cleft lip and palate. Katherine researched for hours to find the best doctors to fix her daughter’s condition and came upon the craniofacial team at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital. She knew Nicklaus Children’s was the right place for her baby daughter and entrusted her in the care of S. Anthony Wolfe, MD, Mislen Bauer, MD, and Marta Mejia, MD. Gabriela had two surgeries at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital by the time she was 18 months old, and after her second surgery, her mother said it was like the doctors handed her a whole “new baby.” Now a typical 8 year old who loves painting and playing with her friends, Gabriela scars are hardly noticeable, but the lessons she has taught her family will last a lifetime.
