The story of little Tess Kerr, who was born without a nose, is an inspiring example of the love and courage of her family who are attempting to raise funds for treatment for the baby, and also to raise awareness of this rare physical condition.
Tess has a condition known as Arhinia, which means that her nose did not develop. This is so rare that there are thought to be only three such cases in the United Kingdom.
If the parents of Tess had followed the doctors' advice they would have had the option of terminating the pregnancy, but instead they showed remarkable love and courage in not doing so.
Tess and her parents deserve all our support and practical help as they face the challenges of the future.
