OPERATION SMILE: Guibson: His Story, His Words

Within Guibson is incredible strength that pushes him to pursue his dreams – strength that his mother, Iva, instilled in him.

When Guibson was 6 months old, he received surgery at his local hospital (unaffiliated with Operation Smile) to repair his cleft lip. Although it seemed to be a success at first, as he grew older the need for corrective surgery soon emerged.

Guibson was teased and excluded from activities at school, but his loving family supported him during those difficult years.
