Cameron Underwood, a 26-year-old man of Yuba City, California, lost most of his lower jaw, nose, and teeth as a consequence of a self-inflicted accidental gunshot two years ago.
After waiting for six months, Underwood finally flew to New York City in January to get his new face as soon as they found a 23-year-old donor William Fisher from Manhattan. This waiting period was recorded to be the 'shortest' so far.
Months after surgery, Underwood was able to smile and lead a normal life again thanks to the successful procedure.
The donor for Underwood's new face was identified as a brilliant student at the Johns Hopkins University who was found to be a registered organ donor.
William's family, although mourning over the loss of their promising son, was thankful that a part of him would live on in Underwood and inspire others.
