Cody Hall Endured 18 Surgeries To Reverse A Birth Defect:
Compare The Happy, Smiling Teen Above With Her Younger Self:
Cody Hall was born with a hemangioma, a tumorous birthmark that distorted the shape of her face and grew larger as she got older.
When she was 1-year-old, her doctors in England told her parents that nothing could be done about her condition, so her parents took her to see surgeons in the U.S.
Fourteen years and 18 reconstructive surgeries later, most of them at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital in New York, the girl who once had a hopelessly deformed face was flashing a beautiful smile at the prom.
An inspiring story to say the least. We wish her all the best.
