Woman Has Huge Tumour Removed From Face (Photo)

HAVING heard that Cheryl Cole is alright – phew! – our thoughts turn to Tshey, a 21-year-old Ethiopian with a 10-inceh wide tumour on her face.

But now some of her pain has been lessened by surgeon Peter Cornelius from Bamberg, Germany, and his team. He tells us:

“The operation to remove the tumour took three hours. It was complicated as so much of the lower face was disfigured by it. Only then were we able to reconstruct her face.”

Says Tshey:

They not only saved my life, they have given me a future as well.”

Cheryl has yet to comment, but chances are that she is proud of Tshey…
