    (1967-April 22, 2016)
    Resides in Valenciennes, France
    Recipient of the world's first face transplant (May 2005)
    She is divorced.
    Her face donor was a brain-dead woman.
    It took a team of 50 doctors and nurses to attach the donor face.
    Her transplant opened the floodgate to new ethical issues.
    She tried to commit suicide by overdosing on sleeping pills.
    Her donor became brain dead after her own ‘successful' suicide attempt.
    She will need to take multiple complex medications for the rest of her life.
    Her face transplant surgery was successful.
    Her face became disfigured when her dog tried to wake her from her overdose.
    Her first words when she woke from the 15-hour surgery was ‘Thank you.'
    Contrary to popular belief, she emerged from the surgery looking like her original self, not her donor.
    Also contrary to popular belief, it was a portion of her face (nose, lips and chin) being replaced, not her entire face.
    She unsuccessfully tried to save her dog from being destroyed.
