Some people have birthmarks located on random parts of the body their entire life. Others have it prominent and visible, while others have it small and hidden.

Cody Hall, however, had a birthmark so large that it changed her life for many years. Hers was a severe facial deformity that distorted half of her face.

After initial checkups, doctors told Hall's parents that there was not much they could do to help until she turned six. However, her family refused to accept her fate and researched on their own.

Eventually, they discovered a surgeon in Roosevelt Hospital, New York, who operated on kids with such a condition. After raising enough money, Hall received her first treatment at the age of one in 1993.

For the next 14 years, she went on to have 18 other surgeries that included eye surgery, facelifts, skin grafts, liposuction, and rhinoplasty, among others.

It was certainly not an easy childhood for Hall, who received many stares and comments from people who got a glimpse of her face.

After years of enduring painful procedures, Hall now works at Kettering General Hospital's surgical ward and hopes she doesn't need any more operations on her face.

Despite the downsides, Hall had a great support system in the form of her family and close friends, who stood by her through it all.

Eventually, things turned out for the better, and at the age of 25, she got her "happy ending." In 2017, Hall tied the knot with her boyfriend of eight years, Lewis Holt.

They got married at St. Michael's Church in Northamptonshire, England, and went viral on media platforms. Hall shared:

"It was an emotional day, and there were some tears, especially when I saw Lewis at the altar, but only tears of joy. I just want to show people that there is a happy ending."

Aside from her love life, Hall's social life has also gotten better. She shared, "Over the years, people have realized I am who I am. I get people coming up to me in the street and saying, 'Well done,' and that they are pleased for me."

Having a congenital disability sometimes happens among children. However, it does not make them less of a person who should be treated with respect and kindness.

However, nurse Sierra Samuels thought otherwise when she mocked a newborn with a congenital disability on social media. After investigation, the nurse faced the consequences of her actions.
