When Robert Hoge was born, he had a tumor the size of a tennis ball in the middle of his face and short, twisted legs. Surgeons removed the tumor and made him a new nose from one of his toes.  Amazingly, he survive --- with a face that would never be the same. Strangers stared at him. Kids called him names and adults could be cruel, too. Everybody seemed to agree that he was “ugly.” But Robert refused to let his face define him.
