My Story...
Hi Friends,

My name is Karthik age 26, living in India.

I was born in India in a middle class family, i am the eldest son and I have 2 brothers.I was born in southern part of India, when I was born I had a red colored mark on my face. My parents were afraid of that and they enquired with the doctor about that and they told it will disappear in time, months passed and my birth mark started shrinking as specified by the doctors and it stopped leaving the red mark at the right side of the face. when i was 10 the right side of the face started bulging and slowly my face turned odd.

when i was 15 the entired face had deviation in the right side.My parents started bothering abt my face, i have faced many difficulties in the school, guys whom i used to play started kidding me and made fun of me, few used to immitate my lip deviation. I felt bad about God for creating me like this. years went on I got some understanding of people around me and stopped bothering about people around me, but my parents are still bothered about me.

I have completed my college and got a job in software company and i am working with the software company.

Even now people working with me used to make fun of my face.

My Mom wants me to get this treated and I am looking for a surgen to get this treated.

I want this get treated with my earning...

Hope I will get treated soon and come back to you with the news.

We have Indian doctors here. Can't think of any i know but if i run into one i will ask if they can advise you where to go.

Search the web. I've notice alot of doctors have their own websites.
