8-year-old Katya was born with rare Tricher-Collins syndrome. This is a genetic disease caused by a mutation in a gene. Such as Katia are called “a child without a face”. The disease is manifested in multiple development deformities of the maxillofacial area. Katya endured a lot of surgeries and the next one is on the line, but the family has no more money. The girl dreams of a new face and a beautiful smile. But the problem is not only in appearance. To date, deformed facial bones complicate Katia's breathing, hearing, and vision. Plastic surgery will improve the appearance of Katya, and most importantly help to breathe, hear and see.
