4 Pound Tumor Removed!

A 16-year-old teenager is getting used to her new reflection after doctors were able to remove a 4-pound tumor from her face. Hennglise Dorival, who lives in Haiti, had lived for years with the large tumor that had grown so large in recent years that it even moved her eye out of its socket and threatened her breathing.The tumor was so large that it even moved her eye out of place, rendering her nearly blind on one side. Members of Operation Smile, a charity that provides free surgery to repair cleft palates, were eventually alerted to Hennglise’s condition and raised funds to bring her and her mother to America for surgery. It took doctors 12 hours to remove the tumor, which had grown so large that it threatened to block her airway if it kept growing at the same rate.
