Now T is sponsored and we are thrilled. Thank you Kathy!
She has had challenges and will continue to due to being affected by agent orange. Her father worked collecting scrap metal at Da Nang airport, the site of dumping dioxide or what has become known as 'agent orange'. After working there some years he and his wife had T. She was born with six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot. Sadly a few years later dad died from 'agent orange' related illnesses.
Last year she had her sixth finger removed from each hand and the recovery process was extremely painful for her. She was meant to have the sixth toes removed this year, but the memory of the pain is too much and she is refusing, but she can only wear thongs due to having 6 toes and knows at some stage she will need to have them removed.
Normal looking hands now
Site of removal of a finger can be seen
