Emanuel Zayas, a Cuban boy will get a help he need,the boy is suffering  from  a 10pounds  tumor  on his face.

Doctors in  Florida will  get to remove the tumor on the 14years old kid.

Emanuel Zayas and his parents  traveled to Miami on a medical visa. Dr. Robert Marx, chief of oral and maxillofacial surgery for the University of Miami Health System, and a team of surgeons will operate on the  teen on Jan. 12 at Jackson’s Holtz Children’s Hospital.

Dr Robert Marx says Emanuel was born with a rare disorder called polyostotic fibrous dysplasia, which causes his body to develop scarlike tissue instead of bone. The disorder often causes fractures and deformities of the arms, legs and skull.

Emanuel’s father, Noel Zayas, says the tumor started as a pimple when the boy hit puberty and grew quickly over a few months. The tumor is benign but threatens to fracture the boy’s neck and suffocate him.
