A massive tumour grew on Kristen’s face when she was a tiny baby, It was ugly, painful and life-threatening. After a lot of anguish, Michelle, Kristen’s mother, found Dr Waner in New York, one of the very few experts in this field, who agreed to operate. Now Kristen looks quite normal, though she has been through many operations. Another little girl, five year old Ala Wasawska, hasn’t been so lucky, and Dr Waner is operating now, when sooner would have been better. His busy life is taken up with helping people in this way, and he comes across as a very caring person. Australia.
