Plastic surgeons honor 'Patients of Courage' overcoming difficult obstacles, inspiring others

ting her insurance carrier's approval with the help of her plastic surgeon, Navin Singh, MD. "Tina is a kind soul who met this adversity with the same panache that she delivers in every aspect of her being," said Dr. Singh. "She is an inspiration to us all."

Candy Wood of Birmingham, Ala., was told by several doctors that she had an inoperable tumor in the base of her skull and only six months to live. Not willing to give up, Wood found reconstructive plastic surgeon Ian Jackson, MD. The life-saving operation in 1982, which required splitting her face in two and opening it to reach the tumor, was a success; however, the tumor came back several years later. This time, Wood developed an infection after the surgery and had to have the frontal bone in her face removed. Despite her facial deformity, Wood talks to groups all over the country and supports reconstructive plastic surgery patients through their personal ordeals. Dr. Jackson said, "Candy is a force to be reckoned with. The sheer wonder of her personality in the face of all she has gone through is almost magical."
