Victoria’s life was marked by daunting challenges – including facing a tumor that began growing when she was just 18 years old. The brave 24-year-old made the journey to the ship alone to find healing, and along the way, received so much more than surgery.
After the procedure to remove the massive tumor, it was a lengthy healing process for Victoria. As you can see, it drastically changed the way she looked as well as how she viewed herself.
According to Mercy Ship, after the tumor was removed, Victoria discovered levels of confidence she’d never had before. “Thank you for making me beautiful,” she told a nurse after her operation. “You’ve always been beautiful,” the nurse replied. We’re so thankful Victoria can believe this about herself now too!
