Doctors are often treated as next to the God because they are the ones who save the patient's life when everyone gives up hope. But what if the doctor refuses to treat his patient? Where will be the patient go then? Dumbstruck right?
I know, I gave a similar reaction when I got to know about Angie Twiggs of Fort Stewart, Georgia who was refused to be operated by almost all the doctors for the tumor on her face.
But who knew the small nodule would become the biggest embarrassment of her life. The protrusion continued to grow bigger day by day, and it began to affect Angie's life drastically. She was embarrassed to leave the house and refused to meet her friends.
Because a little bit of negligence would have left her face paralyzed forever. But then, she could not take it anymore and took help of a television show. Where the doctors helped people with medical problems, who can't afford expensive operations.
In Angie's case, specialists Dr. Ryan Osborne and Dr. Jason Hamilton at Osborne Head and Neck Institute in Los Angeles agreed to help and removed the enormous tumor from the side of Angie's face.
Her family is full of hope.
