Apr. 27 - Lauren Pierre - Nose Deformity

Lauren and Laurense Pierre are twins. They live with their mother in Cite Soleil. The major difference between the twins is that Lauren was born with a lack of nose cartilage. Dr. Hobar and the Leap team have evaluated Lauren over the last couple of years and at first the team thought that the specialty surgery that Lauren needs to construct a nose would have to be done in the United States. Saturday Dr. Hobar met Lauren and her mother and told her that the team were going to do the surgeries here in Haiti. She will be needing multiple surgeries to construct a nose. The first surgery will be done Lord willing the next time the Leap Team comes to Haiti. It will be neat to see the progression between surgeries of her face.
