When she was a teenager, Katie Stubblefield attempted suicide. But she survived shooting herself in the face. And now, at 22, she’s the youngest person to receive a face transplant. This is her remarkable story.
Katie Stubblefield was only 18 years old when she tried to commit suicide.
The impulsive decision was a result of the kind of emotional tragedy most teenagers will face at least once in their lives. But it left Katie without a nose, mouth, jaw, or forehead. In other words, without a face.
