Teenager With Facial Tumour Proves Doctors Wrong | BORN DIFFERENT
A defiant teenager born with a rare facial tumour that leaves her unable to speak or eat dreams of becoming a nurse. Doctors said Jacqueline Rodriguez would not live to see her first birthday, but the now 16-year-old has truly defied all odds and is set to graduate from college next year. Jacqueline suffers with lymphatic malformations, an extremely rare condition that has formed large masses of tumour in her cheeks, tongue and chest. Undeterred by having to speak through an iPad and eat through a formula tube, the brave teen from California takes regular guitar lessons, plays tennis for a local club and has high hopes to study nursing at Stanford University.
