    Poor girl. Thank goodness for medical missions.

    Everyone here in the ER had to look - her eyes got to me.

    that is... wow... i'm speechless. I want to see how things go after. I hope she will be alright. They said it affected some vital organs.

    I think that is the same condition as that little boy on the Discovery Channel - Novemthree. The documentary was called "The Boy with a Tumor for a Face" or something like that. He looked much better after his surgery, though he still had a way to go. I saw the show a few times, and the last time I watched it, in October, there was an addendem to the end that said he passed away in September. I believe it was respiratory-related. He had been trached for the surgeries.

    I will follow this story, poor girl...

    Oh my goodness! I am glad that she is receiving the treatment she needs and deserves. Does anyone know where we can donate?

    She was on Maury the other day. He acctually had a show on that wasn't "Who's my Baby's Daddy."

    Wow, she was on Maury?? I am assuming this was before her operation. The poor thing. She had a hard enough time being ridiculed in her own country, and I am sure she only did it because she was paid...

    What?!? I saw this story too. I didn't know that poor little boy passed away! What a shame! He looked like a regular little boy after the surgeries. I know that girl can look better too. Have they started the surgeries yet? Should have been done sooner. What a crying shame to have to wait so long and have kids make fun of you. I hope she does well.
