Michael was born with a birth defect called a "Cleft Palate". This is when the infant is born with no roof at the top of the mouth, and plastic surgery is required to re-construct a new roof. Michael's mother had to feed him with a tube until he had his surgery at the age of 15 months old. The surgery is now done at 1-2 weeks old.
"I feel blessed to have had this surgery available to me when i was an infant and want to help other infants who need this care" - Michael Shane
