Lai’s Tumor

Lai was born with a small benign mass on her tongue that went untreated and grew into a 12-pound tumor. She grew up in a remote village in Vietnam and didn’t have access to proper medical care. As she grew older, the mass grew larger and threatened to suffocate her. At age 15, she is given just six months to live. See the grueling 11-hour surgery that saved her life.
