    I just saw this on my local news. Sad... poor girl, having to live through day to day being referred to as "grandma" by her peers.

    Sure hope that she finds a way to get cosmetic surgery.

    I just saw this on Inside Edition and she looks more like 65, I know 50 year olds who have much less wrinkes and sagging skin.. Her mother is only 41 they said, and she looks 75..this is so sad for her, her older sisters are 14 & 20ish, but they are aging normally, you know this has to be so hard for her, both at home and in school..I believe IE said this condition is so rare only about 2000 people in the world have it..I feel for all of them..

    I really feel for that young girl. I just hope that some good samaritan will come along and foot the bill for cosmetic surgery that will make her more youthful looking and allows her to get confidence back.

    She could drown out her sorrows by smoking, as Wal-Mart's policy for Tobacco is

    Holy crap.

    And teenagers complain about acne... both of these stories are just scary. At least the girl that had her face sloughed off recovered (looking pretty good now). Hope somebody can help the other girl.
