Haitian Woman Has Tumor Removed

By  | 

OCALA, Fla. (AP) -- A Haitian woman who traveled to Florida to
have a massive tumor removed from her mouth is on her way home.

Thirty-eight-year-old Lorette Pierre travels back to Haiti on
Monday and will see her husband and six children for the first time
since March.

Pierre had a four-pound tumor jutting from her mouth that made
eating and breathing nearly impossible. Doctors at Halifax Medical
Center in Daytona Beach were able to remove the tumor and
reconstruct her lower jaw.

She's now showing off a smile that hasn't been seen for years.
