My name is Timmy Duggan. I am a professional road cyclist and I was born with a cleft lip and palate. No doubt the struggles I went through growing up with a cleft lip and palate shaped my drive and toughness to become a national champion and Olympian in my sport. I am very lucky, however, to have grown up with a supportive family with easy access to the medical care I needed. Unfortunately, most children in the world in my situation aren't so lucky. Many live in remote or poor places far from proper medical care. I am thrilled to support Operation Smile to help give less fortunate children the care that they need that will change their life for the better.
Together, We Can Change Lives
Operation Smile mobilizes a world of generous hearts to heal children’s smiles and transform lives across the globe. Operation Smile’s network of volunteers works worldwide to repair childhood facial deformities including cleft lips and cleft palates.
I hope you'll help me bring hope and new smiles to children suffering from facial deformities.
