This Baby Boy Was Born Without A Nose…And He’s Absolutely ADORABLE.
As Eli grows, his mothers said he would need to undergo surgeries every year or two for reconstructive surgery until he reaches puberty.But then, something amazing happened. Eli met someone just like him, and it would completely change this planned trajectory.
Two-year-old Tessa Evans was born in Ireland with the same condition as Eli. In June of 2015, Tessa was the first child to undergo surgery that would give her a brand new nose.
The surgery will gradually stretch Tessa’s skin with a prosthesis to fit a 3D-printed nose where her nose should have been. The prosthesis will be replaced every few years so that it grows with her face.And at the end of September of 2015, Eli was approved for the same surgery.
He proves time and time again that having a nose doesn’t mean you can’t have the cutest face on planet Earth.
Like this time when he showed his education goals. Go Wildcats!
But most importantly, he and Tessa prove that being different doesn’t mean you aren’t beautiful. It just means you have an amazing chance to inspire others through your incredible bravery.
