Marlie can no longer bare the bewildered expressions on people’s faces as she walks by. Up until the age of three, Marlie had a normal existence, but slowly her life was to change. She has been diagnosed with a facial deformity associated with a disease called Polyostotic Fibrous Dysplasia that has not only deformed her face, but severely affected her respiratory system. Upon arrival to Miami she underwent a tracheotomy and got a feeding tube to relieve her condition, but she will need extensive surgeries and treatment. This will not only improve her appearance…it will save her life.
