Leading the effort is Dr. John van Aalst, Craniofacial Plastic Surgeon with the Department of Surgery. Baby Adam was born in September 2011 in India with Bartsocas-Papas, a rare syndrome that caused him to be born without eyelids and fingers. He had a cleft palate, cleft lip and his legs were fused. Having gone through a number of surgeries at UNC last fall, his parents hope to raise $150K before his next scheduled surgery in mid-August.
