Renowned Sleep Apnea Expert Dr. Avi Weisfogel Opens GoFundMe Account

Dr. Avi Weisfogel is showing the world what is really important. Instead of spending his days enjoying luxuries, he is actively involved in raising money for an organization called Operation Smile. To that end, he has recently opened a GoFundMe campaign for the benefit of Operation Smile.

What Is Operation Smile?

Operation Smile focuses on the needs of many children, especially ones from third-world countries, who were born with serious mouth defects, and in particular, a defect knows as a cleft lip or/and palate, which is when the upper lip contains an opening that could extend into the nose. Not only does Operation Smile provide plastic surgery to those children who cannot afford it, so that they can live their lives as normal people, but they also work with governments around the globe to raise awareness of this terrible defect and prevent its occurrence.

Operation Smile is based in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and was founded in 1982 by Dr. Bill and Kathy Magee after they participated in a mission for cleft repair in the Philippines, which is when they realized that there was a need for additional awareness about this defect. According to an interview, Dr. Magee claims that his imperative for founding this program was, in his words, guilt. He simply saw so many children that were simply turned away due to a lack of funds and time.

Who Is Dr. Weisfogel?
