What an honor to be a part of such a memorable event for Operation Smile!

Malibu locals came to the event hosted by Veronica at Veronica Malibu Skin & Body Care Center to view the premier of Operation Smile’s “A Cure to War: Six Degress of Humanity”, directed by Patrick Heaphy and narrated by Craig T. Nelson. The movie documents how Operation Smile began during the Vietnam War when a large group of American surgeons were sent to help return soldiers lost during the Vietnam War. These amazing doctors built relationships by performing operations to restore the smiles of the Vietnamese children.
