    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.

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