PERSONAL STORIES ABOUT GIVING BACK

Kate Walsh

The actress, 47, works with Operation Smile to help kids with facial deformities

When people think plastic surgeon, they might think it’s sort of a vapid profession. But the truth of the matter is they can change people’s lives. Operation Smile provides free surgeries to repair a cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children around the world. I just got back from a mission in Mexico, following two children who had bilateral clefts. One of the children, a 6-year-old named Rosa, had this very sad look in her eyes. She could barely speak. Clearly she had been affected socially, emotionally and psychologically. I got to witness the surgery, which was like an incredible puzzle; the doctors put her mouth back together. The change in this girl’s life will be profound. It’s really an uplifting and beautiful thing.
