One of the worst problems on earth is how people treat others with ‘abnormality’ based on their worldly standards – especially on beauty. Watch this viral video of how a bullied girl with ‘deformed’ face undergoes a life-changing surgery! This is indeed very inspiring!

According to some research, the girl named Sarah Atwell has this kind of disease known as ‘Neurofibromatosis.’ It is a genetic disorder of the nervous system. It mainly affects how nerve cells form and grow. It causes tumors to grow on nerves. You can get neurofibromatosis from your parents, or it can happen because of a mutation (change) in your genes. Once you have it, you can pass it along to your children. Usually the tumors are benign, but sometimes they can become cancerous.

As also been mentioned by Daily Mail Website, the teenage star of The Girl with Half a Face has undergone surgery to transform her appearance. Sarah Atwell, 17, from Nova Scotia, Canada, was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis at eight months old, a genetic condition that has caused a large tumor to consume the right side of her face.

Sarah, who has been badly bullied her whole life, initially shot to fame in 2012 after posting a video to Facebook in which she made her intentions to live a happy life clear no matter what the bullies called her.

In a series of cards held up to the camera, she says: 'I have a tumor, that’s all. . . I wish people could understand there is nothing wrong with me. Another reads: 'I get called names all the time. . . Bitch, slut, fat face, fat, ugly - it hurts.

‘Maybe one day the bullying will stop, but until then I’m going to be STRONG,’ one of the last cards says. The impact of that post was bigger than she could have ever imagined.

This is one of the most-heartbreaking videos people have ever watched in their entire life. Rising from the darkest times of your life and living your life to the fullest is a not easy thing and her courage is definitely the one that will show how a life must be fought, hard but can bring the best things in life.
