Irina Nefyodova

Irina Nefyodova
Irina Nefyodova is from Russia. When she was eight years old her face was being destroyed by a benign tumor. Instead of learning how to ride a bike or swim or jump rope, Irina hid from the world.

The Hope For Tomorrow Foundation came to Irina's aid by bringing her to the United States and Mercy Hospital in Buffalo, New York. In 1996 the surgery to remove the tumor was performed by Doctorss Kulwant Bhangoo and Jeffrey Meilman.

The six hour procedure restored her face and gave Irina back her self esteem and a bright future.
