Image 1 / 6

My Giant Face Tumour tells the story of Jose Mestre, a 53-year-old man from Portugal thought to have the world's largest facial tumour. As a boy, Jose's growing tumour was ignored as doctors attempted to control his epileptic seizures. In time the tumour had grown to 12 pounds, blinding him in one eye, and blocking his ability to speak, eat and even breathe. After a British tourist visiting Portugal saw Jose on the street he put him in touch with Dr Mckay McKinnon a world renowned plastic surgeon. In search of a miracle, Jose and his sister Edith travel from Portugal to Chicago, where plastic surgeon Dr.McKinnon attempts to perform life-saving surgery.
