Dr. Steele is the doctor that took half my face off and hooked me up with a plastic surgeon to repair the damage.

Hi,


Ignore my last mail to you. I have just been reading on here about your carcinoma. What a brave and courageous woman you are. I feel terribly moaning about a relationship when I think what you have been through. You are an inspiration.

Wow, you have come a long way and despite all the obstacles you have had to overcome. You're looking fabulous!!!!


I am a nurse and know how much body image means to everybody but you have been so strong and handled things very well.


Agree with you the outer part of us is just a shell. The real stuff goes on underneath, feelings, thoughts, soul! It's so important to not judge people by their appearance but I'm afraid in this world we live in a lot of people do. I have been guilty of it myself in the past but am trying to improve and 'not judge the book by its cover' anymore. There is so much more to people when you start talking to them. I used to work in A&E and we got some very difficult cases in but when you actually talked to them as human beings they had a whole life full of losses, memories, emotions, grief. If we had judged by the outer shell, we would never had come to know all this about the person. How shallow we are as a nation at times!


5 years on and you are looking beautiful. You have your job back and your life!
