THOUSAND PALMS, Calif. - September is Craniofacial acceptance month.  The goal is to create awareness of those who are facially disfigured and help people look "beyond the face."

Dorina Watkins and Shawna Sanders are tireless advocates and fundraisers for craniofacial awareness and the Children's Craniofacial Association.  Watkin's son Jordan, 6, has Couzon syndrome.  Sanders' daughter Sophia, 5, has Pfeiffer syndrome.

They spoke with CBS Local 2's Brooke Beare about the conditions, and emotional and physical impairments children and adults with craniofacial disorders face.
