We are so proud to share this wonderful article Trudy Horsting wrote for news section of patientworthy.com, under the category of Rare Disease News.

In the article she writes the following.

Patricia Simon was born with a cleft lip and palate. She is now a nurse, a public speaker, a patient advocate, and a writer. She has a great partnership with Children’s Craniofacial Association (CCA Kids) where she is a Speakers’ Bureau member.

Patricia has just finished another book in her children’s series on children with craniofacial differences. The book is called “Simon and Patty Go To Camp” and it is the fourth in her series. You can read about her entire series here.
The first book was published in 2018 and it was translated into Tagalog for a speech camp in the Philippines organized by SmileTrain. Two other books followed, each filled with beautiful images, songs, and the same message of acceptance and kindness.
