Bride-to-be Janine sees true meaning of human decency

Editor's Viewpoint

Fate dealt Janine Howard a cruel hand. She contracted a flesh-eating infection while undergoing treatment for leukaemia as a toddler and was left with a facial deformity. Throughout her life she has had to endure taunts from merciless peers, but after going public she has learned that the decent people of the world outnumber those who laughed at her.

As her wedding day approaches, designer MaryRose McGrath is making her dream dress; a bridal company is outfitting her bridesmaids, and another company is providing her with facial treatments. These donors are the true face of Northern Ireland in helping Janine overcome her torment.
