It was a tumor that wasn’t treated from birth and now ended up as you see now, for this day and age it is mind boggling how this can still happen. He has been virtually living as a recluse for many years and understandably so as you could imagine trying to get out and about with a 33 pound tumor hanging off your face and also the stares and ridicule he would receive from cruel people of today.
This is a link below to a site where you can see the video and also see 10 photos of the man they have dubbed “Elephant Man”. I am not sure exactly when the operation will take place but it said shortly and I am sure if all goes well there will be nice pictures of the operation to view as well.
A warning to people if you are a little squeamish then don’t go to the link, it isn’t anything that hasn’t been shown before on the TV or printed in newspaper but is a little shocking.
