Tim McGrath, 38, was diagnosed with Synovial Sarcoma, an extremely rare form of soft tissue cancer, which left him with the grapefruit-sized tumour growing on his face.

Doctors managed to cut out the cancerous tumour, but his body rejected multiple attempts to rebuild it.

But after a year of living with exposed flesh, top surgeon Dr Kongkrit Chaiyasate, who heard about Tim’s plight, agreed to help him.

Using skin from his leg and forearm, the surgeon was able to successfully reconstruct the 38-year-old’s face.

Tim, from Michigan, USA, is now enjoying every opportunity he is given despite the reconstruction work being ongoing.

The keen golfer said: ‘After the operation to remove the tumour I was heartbroken, I didn’t realise that half of my face would be taken away and it wasn’t until I went to Dr Chaiyasate that I start to feel real hope again.

‘I was covered in scars from previous surgeries which limited my options for reconstruction but we went ahead and the outcome has been incredible.

‘He reconstructed my face using skin and muscle from my left leg, left forearm, and a flap from my forehead, and skin graphs were used to help the healing process.

‘I currently can’t drink liquid, eat through my mouth, or pronounce certain words, however my quality of life has improved massively.

‘There are people who stare at me, mostly children who don’t understand, but I would hope that others look past what they can see.

‘My journey has been long and mostly inconceivable to most, but I have an amazing support group around me and I draw strength from them daily.

This man should be our daily motivation that we should never give up and that if we persevere nothing can stop us in this life!

Let this be our example, please share and encourage everyone you know!
