Yuliya has lived with a birth defect on the left side of her face, known as hemangioma, since she was born. The last time any medical attention was given to her for this condition was when she was only three months old. She lives a life of ridicule and isolation, which could be improved with a common operation available in Western Medicine.
We have been able to match Yuliya with Dr. Thomas Romo, III, in New York City. Dr. Romo, a renowned plastic surgeon who focuses on facial reconstruction, is offering his services for free, as part of his Little Baby Face Foundation, finally help fix her life-long deformities. HUHTC-USA will cover travel and housing expenses for Yuliya.
