Can you live a life without your face?

That's exactly what happens to

Michelle Fox, who was shot in the face accidentally by Michelle's ex- husband when he was demonstrating how parts from his old shotgun were interchangeable with a weapon he had just purchased five years ago. The birdshot blast took away Michelle's eyes, nose and upper palate.



Now she has already rebuilt her life.





(Michelle Fox's boyfriend, Mike Notaro, customized a plastic tray to protect Michelle's silicon and acrylic facial prosthesis.)
