A Kid Born with a Cleft Palate has Gone Viral Again!

posted by The Rahny Taylor Morning Show -

This is a pretty cool story if you haven't heard about it yet . . .

There's a seven-year-old kid in Oklahoma named Madden Humphreys who was born with a cleft palate, and had surgery to repair it.  And he was also born with two different-colored eyes.  One's blue, and the other one's hazel.

A video he made last summer about being bullied got a few hundred thousand hits on Facebook.  

Meet Madden. Madden is an Owasso seven year old who was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate. To date, he has undergone a total of six surgeries, and has many more to go. Madden is usually spunky, outgoing, friendly, kind, and fun! Unfortunately, he had a bully on the school bus this year that started affecting how he felt about himself. When his parents found out, they worked to help change his perception on bullies. Now that he’s back to his normal spunky self, he’s eager for everyone to know that he’s special. He wants to remind the world that being a “poophead” to someone really isn’t cool, as he shows you in his video……. Then, if you feel like it, share his message with others.

And now he's back in the news because of a new FRIEND he's got.

His mom was recently on a Facebook support group page for parents of kids with cleft palates.  And someone showed her a photo of a CAT that looked just like Madden.

Its left eye is blue, just like his . . . its right eye is hazel . . . and it also has a cleft lip.

It turned out it was at a shelter in Minnesota.  So a bunch of friends and random strangers chipped in to pay for a road trip.  Then they drove up north and ADOPTED it.

Now a bunch of photos of them are making the rounds online, and Madden's mom says they're inseparable.
