(Photos) Before & After: Wow! The Man Who Received A FULL Face Transplant Looks AMAZING!

Richard Lee Norris after the accident

A man who’s lived as a self-described “hermit” since a horrific 1997 accident now has a new lease on life. Back then, an accident with a gun took off Richard Norris’ entire jaw, his lips and his nose, leaving his face severely disfigured (above). He’s rarely gone out in public since then and when he did, he’d wear a surgical mask to hide his face so people wouldn’t stare. Now, he’s gotten his life back, after a huge surgery in March replacing both jaws, teeth, tongue and skin, along with nerve and muscle tissue from his scalp to his neck. It was a procedure that took 36 hours to complete, done by Dr. Eduardo Rodriguez at the University of Maryland Medical Center. Since March, doctors said that the right side of his face is at about 80 percent normal motor function and his left is at about 40. He has also regained the ability to smell and taste. “Richard is exceeding my expectations this soon after his surgery, and he deserves great deal of credit for the countless hours spent practicing his speech and strengthening his new facial muscles,” Dr. Rodriguez said. “He’s one of the most courageous and committed individuals I know.” It’s amazing what science is capable of these days! Check out the before and after in the gallery, and Richard’s statements below.

(Photo) Little Angelina, Brave Girl Fighting Cancer

IFWT_angelina_2

Today I wanted to start off by writing about a beautiful young girl that has not only impacted my life but the lives of many. On August 28, 2011, Little Angelina was diagnosed with stage three neuroblastoma. She has been a fighter ever since. On September 28, 2012 Angelina went in to have her central line removed. It was then that her parents demanded an ultrasound because Angelina had been complaining about a pain in her abdomen. Unfortunately doctors discovered three tumors. Angelina has one in her liver, one in her lungs, and one in her kidney. At this point her family is hoping and praying Angelina will recover. This Saturday October 20, 2012, a fundraiser is being held in her name. The fundraiser will be held at The West Five Supper Club 505 Madison St. (Corner of 5th St.) Hoboken, New Jersey 07030. If you cannot attend please make a donation to littleangelina.org. For more info on Angelina’s health and fundraiser click below.

If Your Girl Only Knew …

ifwt-couple

If you are a man in a relationship and cheating , you do NOT want your girl to know right?Yes, SUPER obvious(hear me out). She is either going to do everything Aaliyah said in her track or worse.  In my opinion worse, nowadays a scorned woman isn’t unplugging her phone and ignoring you.  She’ll probably make it her job to thoroughly research you and destroy your life post-break up.  Okay besides the fear this may instill in you there is a legit reason why you should not cheat, it actually causes heart attacks!
