When I first saw this upcoming National Geographic show advertised, I caught a glimpse of this poor man and actually thought it was a joke... I was waiting for a punch line. It took a moment to realize that what I was seeing was real! He has a 50 Lb tumor on his face.

Known as "China's Elephant Man," Huang Chuncai suffers from exceptionally large tumors that have stunted his growth, left his bones undeveloped, caused his spine to buckle and restricted his breathing. Now, Huang undergoes a risky surgery.

It is surprising that he has made it this far. I hope his surgery goes very well for him.
