Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

Tassy Fils-aime was once a teenager with a disfiguring tumor that threatened to keep him from eating.

"When I look in the mirror, I can't believe if it's me," Tassy Fils-aime told Channel 4 Action News' Sally Wiggin.

Dr. Michael White, a plastic surgeon at Allegheny General Hospital, rebuilt Fils-aime's jaw after Dr. James Blaugrund removed the benign tumor.
