A charity which helps families of children born with a condition which requires major facial surgery in the first few months of their life, is marking its 35th anniversary this year.
The Cleft Lip and Palate Association now has 22,000 members across the UK looking to it for support and help.
All babies born with clefts across the East of England have their surgery at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.
Tom Murfitt was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate, and now as he approaches his 2nd Birthday, he has already had three major operations.
Tom's next operation won't be until his adult teeth start to come through. He will be in specialist care until he is 18 years old and then he has the option for continued care if needed.
Mr Tariq Ahmad is an NHS Consultant Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeon, working at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.
The Hospital is the main regional specialist centre for cleft surgery for the whole of the East of England.
