“I went and said a prayer and certainly needed as much divine intervention that I could get with this one.”

Doctor Ronald Morton desperately tried to save 8-year-old Makenzie Wilgus when a car accident almost ripped the entire lower half of her face off. From her throat to her cheek and tongue, everything was completely scraped off and you could even see the underlying bone. Doctor Morton spent hours performing surgery on her face, praying that somehow she would be able to recuperate.

Eleven years passed and he finally got the chance to see her again. He was in complete shock! He could barely recognize who she was, there is almost no evidence of the trauma she suffered as a little girl.
