There are certain natural phenomena which can never be taken into account and thus the outcome cannot be predicted. Like natural disasters which occur unplanned, there are other things which are not under the control of human beings. There are certain cases in the world which often intrigue human but no explanation can be found or offered. There is this girl named Juliana Wetmore who was born without a face and her story went viral on the internet and she almost became a media sensation. Where is her face?
A LITTLE girl has defied extraordinary odds to reach her ninth birthday, after a rare condition meant she was born without a face. Doctors doubted she would survive her first few hours of life, refused to feed her and advised her family to start making funeral arrangements. After defying their predictions at two days old she was transferred to a specialist unit where her condition was identified and a week later she was released to her family's care. She looked a little strange when she was born she had a big opening on her face and a very open eye, she was different from our other children. Since then she's had eight surgeries to reconstruct her eyes, nose and mouth as well as stimulate her motor functions, most recently at Shriner's Hospital in Texas, USA. Parents Ronaldo and Jocilene, 39 and 43, are continuing to fundraise for more treatment in the hope it will give her a better quality of life. Earlier this month, she reached her ninth birthday baffling doctors who believe the only reason she is alive is due to her family's thorough care and love.

Treacher Collins syndrome TCS is a genetic disorder characterized by deformities of the ears, eyes, cheekbones, and chin. TCS is usually autosomal dominant. Treacher Collins syndrome is not curable. Symptoms in people with Treacher Collins syndrome vary. Some individuals are so mildly affected that they remain undiagnosed, while others have moderate to severe facial involvement and life-threatening airway compromise. The most common symptom of Treacher Collins syndrome is underdevelopment of the lower jaw and underdevelopment of the zygomatic bone. This can be accompanied by the tongue being retracted.
