"I was sick, I was always indoors, I was not happy anymore, I worried all the time."
Grace, at 17-years-old, finally had the football-sized tumor That's she's been living with for years, removed. Thankfully, when she still had her tumor she was still able to talk and eat. However, Grace was so self-conscious about her tumor she stopped going to school. Grace was finally getting the change she was hoping for! Her four hour surgery removed the tumor, her lower jaw and teeth. After Grace is fully healed she will receive artificial teeth to complete her transformation! When Grace was asked about her surgeons, she replied with, "They made me happy- now I want to study and help other people." How inspiring!
