Sinopsis: A Face In Time is the true story of Judy Ryan, who at 17 was diagnosed with a malignant facial tumor, embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma. In its early stages, the pressure of the tumor alone began to erode part of her cheek bone. And once radiation was administered, damage to her skin, tissue, jaw, eye, ear and scalp was well underway. Despite a fatal prognosis, she survived and since that time there has been no reoccurance.
How incredibly fortunate and remarkable it was that she recovered, but, at the time, her survival was bittersweet. In addition to the various maladies she was left to contend with, there was a marked change in her apprearance.
Told with honesty and humor, her tale is one of determination that moved her beyond the cosmetic and quality of life issues left behind by cancer and radiation. Making peace with her altered features has been a life-long journey -- a journey that led to a happy life without limitations. Twenty-six years and surgeries later, Judy hopes that others can find solace in their own differences while learning from the mistakes she made along the way in her attempts to make the right choices in doctors and surgical procedures.
From the Author: Our lives can defy what many believe is impossible -- living healthy, happy, productive lives with a face that may be disproportionate, discolored, scarred, paralyzed, or for some, a face that has been pieced back together with prosthetic or other harvested parts of the body. Facial difference takes a bad hair day to the extreme because that difference can never be disguised by a hat, scarf or wig. That difference is there for all to see. And that sometimes overwhelming reality is why I decided to record my experience in this memoir. I knew this was a project that gave purpose to all the challenges I dealt with in the past and present. It has been an experience with learning worth sharing.
