Last Monday (07.14) the Barrow Cleft and Craniofacial Center in Phoenix Arizona hosted a Girls’ Day Out, treating 12 patients to a day filled with facials, pedicures and hair styling.
A fine story on its own, it got even finer at last night’s Arizona Diamondbacks home game where Barrow and its co-director, Dr. Stephen Beals, were honored with a #HelloHumankindness award. Accompanied to the field by 16 year old patient, Yesenia, Dr. Beals shared a bit of Yesenia’s story with the Diamondbacks and their fans.
Cleft and craniofacial teams like Barrow care for their patients in so many ways that reach far beyond the doctor’s office or next procedure. Thanks to Barrow for the creative ways it cares for the whole person and to the Arizona Diamondbacks organization for helping raise awareness about people with clefts and the professionals who care for them.
