Can you help Southport woman Danielle Lake who born with rare facial deformity. Danielle is now emotionally ready for the operation but needs help to pay for it.
Danielle said: “I was born with a rare deformity on my mouth and had three operations at Great Ormond Street hospital. They said they had never seen anyone with a deformity like mine.
“When I was 14 they wanted to break my lower jaw and push it back and cut a v shape to pull my bottom lip across to fix it but at 14-years-old I was terrified and didn’t want it.
“I’m 31 years old now and all my life I was bullied and people used to laugh at me. I used to say I don’t care about it but I guess really I would love to have a ‘normal’ mouth. It does get me down but I never show it.
“Any help would be great. It’s a big operation but I just would love to have a mouth just like everyone else.
“I have tried the NHS again but it seems like the best option is go private. Thank you for your time.
“I’m sorry for asking”
