She was fortunate enough to have parents who’d made the decision to do everything. In their power to provide their child with the opportunity to live a normal and healthy life. But without the assistance of a few. Random people with goodwill in their hearts.
None of that would have been possible. According to claims from the Daily Express, a growth was discovered on Melissa’s chin. Not too long after she was born.
