22-Year-Old Plagued by Face Tumor Seeks Help from The Doctors
Lucas was born with a rare lymphangioma tumor on his face. Lucas explains that he has endured a slew of health problems related to the tumor including blurred vision, a burst eardrum, and extreme pain that persists from morning until night. His tumor has also affected his and his family’s social and educational lives. “I felt guilty for being this way, for having to put [my mom] through that and I feel like I failed at being born,” Lucas shares, saying he feels like “a burden” to his family. Despite his past fears, Lucas bravely joins The Doctors on stage saying he has come forward in part to inspire others.
