A Courageous “Face”

Filed under: Nursing Science — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 01:10

Connie Culp, the first woman ever to receive a full face transplant from a cadaver, gave her first press conference yesterday at the Cleveland Clinic. 5 years ago, a shotgun bullet blast a hole through Culp’s face. Lucky to even be alive and countless operations since, it is amazing to hear Connie speak about her ordeal and thank the nurses and physicians who assisted her. This women’s spirit really soars and she is to be commended for her courage and amazing resilience.
