The Story of My Face Transplant
Cameron Underwood tried to take his own life by shooting himself in the face, he survived, but with severe facial injuries. Doctors told his family his face was "dust". He didn't think he'd be able to smile again, until he met Dr Eduardo Rodriguez who performed a 25-hour face transplant to reconstruct his face. The donor was 23 year old Will Fisher and his mum Sally told Outlook's Jo Fidgen that she wouldn't have survived her son's death without knowing his face was going to help someone else survive.
In this edition of the podcast, you have two listening options. In the first, we hear Cameron in his own voice, in the second version, his words have been voiced up by an actor. This is because he's still getting used to speaking with his new face.
