Juliana Wetmore was born in 2003 with a very rare genetic craniofacial disorder known as Treacher Collins Syndrome.
The girl has no face literally, she’s missing 30–40% of bones in her face.
According to doctors, the case of Juliana is one of the most difficult in the world. She breathes through a tracheotomy and is fed by gastrostomy. She has already undergone more than 20 plastic surgery operations and very soon she will have to have many many more.
Doctors will never be able to give the girl a new face, but they could at least partially restore her skull and facial bones.
« Our ultimate goal for Juliana is for her to be happy with who she is. She will be able to achieve any goal which she sets for herself or any obstacles put before her. We have no doubt that she can achieve this because she is so incredibly intelligent”, said Juliana’s parents.
