Medical → Mark Tatum... "the man without a face"

Mark Tatum (1956 - 26 February 2005) was an American man from Kentucky, who became known as "the man without a face" after he became in 2000 the victim of a very aggressive facial fungal infection (Rhinocerebral Mucormycosis). To save his life, doctors had to remove his eyes, nose, upper jaw and all surrounding bone and tissue which meant that he literally lost his face.
Tatum was a medical phenomena due to the fact that he survived the infection. Later he got a prosthetic face and he underwent surgeries so he could eat, drink and speak again. Due to his extreme experience, Tatum was highly profiled in the media (Ripley's Believe it or Not). He was a courageous individual who served as a symbol of strength for the thousands of people who have lost their health.

Rhinocerebral phycomycosis, commonly referred to as mucormycosis, is a rare but serious opportunistic infection of the sinuses and brain caused by saprophytic fungi. No reports document survivors of mucormycosis before 1955. (Amphotericin (anti-fungal antibiotic) became available in the 1950s.) Survival rates among groups of patients with invasive sinus disease without cerebral involvement may be as high as 50-80%. The mainstay of therapy is extensive debridement of all infected and necrotic tissue.

Sad...some sick Fuck will reply to
this..with some redundant "dick up my
arse" retort...
You must be a sad little man to sit at
your computer and come up with your
adolescent comments. Wow...your so funny.
Not. You are sad and unhappy.
Yes. God does exist. This man did not
suffer in vain. He will be beautiful in
Heaven.
Maybe you'll be the faceless man in Hell.
Watch yourself and what you say. You are
so sad. Not witty...sad.

It is sad and amazing that Mark suffered and survived. My honor goes to his wonderful wife as a full time caregiver. It is sad that perverts are using this forum to push their perverted agenda. Isn't there any quality control here? Do you need an Admin to help?
