Patrick Hardison received devastating injuries in a house fire as he attempted to rescue a woman he believed to be trapped in the blaze.
This brave man was left with third-degree burns to his entire face and scalp – for years he wore a baseball cap, sunglasses, and prosthetic ears in public.
Patrick recalled children running away when they saw him, but his life changed again in 2015 when he underwent the most extensive face transplant ever.
As per reports, Hardison had a 50/50 chance of surviving the face transplant. However, the surgery – which took 26 hours and more than 100 people working in two teams – was a success. Today, Patrick Hardison is living life alongside his beloved wife and children.
