Mayra – Learning to Smile


Many children are born with deformities that left untreated may cause life-long physical challenges. Organizations such as Doctors without Borders are invaluable for those who do not have access to medical care. Mayra is one of those. She was born with a cleft palate. Even with the surgery to repair her mouth, she had difficulty eating and was embarrassed due to the lack of teeth. Amigos de Guatemala partnered with Jenner Argueta, DDS, an oral surgeon fellow at University of Southern California. Today, Mayra is never seen without a smile.
