Woman Disfigured by Huge Facial Tumour Reveals New Face after Transplant


For every minute we are up on our feet and able to enjoy life, with no sickness, with or without money, we all ought to be thankful.

This Polish woman, pictured above, more pics below, was disfigured by a huge facial tumour but yesterday, she revealed her new face at a press conference in Poland. The 26-year-old, identified only as Joanna, underwent Poland's second ever facial transplant after neurofibromatosis – a genetic condition causing benign tumours - left her
unable to chew, talk or swallow.

But successfully, doctors were able to use a donated face and replace 80 per cent of the skin on Joanna's face, after a 23 hour surgery,. And now, Joanna can chew, talk and swallow  again. Best part - doctors said the facial tumour will not recur because the skin on her new face is from different genes.

You don't even need anyone to explain to you the hardship, pains this young woman has survived. Check out her amazing transformation below:
