 2-Pound Tumor Removed from Baby's Face
Jordan Jamal Smith was finally seen by his mom for the first time after doctors operated on a 2-pound tumor covering his face.

Doctors at the University of Miami operated on the tumor called epignathus teratoma that almost killed Jordan and his mother during pregnancy.

"Thirty-five percent of his own weight was sitting on his face," said Dr Ramzi Younis, who cut away the tumor. Jordan's mother Kimberly Robinson calls it a miracle as she was advised by doctors to abort the pregnancy.
