Description

Featuring true stories of people whose faces have been disfigured as a result of cancer, trauma, or a birth defect, "Eye of the Beholder" explores what it's like to try and live an ordinary life behind a remarkable face. "Eye of the Beholder" features the stories of Melissa, who has undergone forty-two surgeries in nineteen years to try to correct issues affecting her face since birth; Dr. Thomas Cowper, who specializes in crafting prosthetic eyes; and Jack Moyer, who lost his jaw as a result of cancer treatment; and many, many others, including family members of those with facial differences. Although there are commonalities in every story, particularly regarding stigma, each person faces unique challenges and realizes different outcomes. These dramatic stories also feature medical and scientific advances, as well as the history of facial plastic surgery and face transplant. It is an excellent resource for people with facial differences and their families.
