Jose Mestre a Jehovah's Witness had as a youth a tumor starting to grow on his lip. Nothing was done about it due to lack of finances and misdiagnosis and soon it took over all of his face.
He also could not have anything medical done about it after it got so bad due to his whacky religious beliefs that out laws blood transfusions as they believe that Satan could leap into the foreign blood and would would then steal the soul of the body he inhabits and infect the person with free thought and commonsense.
Now by an advancement in science he can have surgery without a blood transfusion.
Due to his hideously distorted face he is well known around the streets of Lisbon in portugal where he is called "Be'lakor the hell spawn" and is spat upon and has had the evil eye cast at him from time to time, not because of his gross appearance but because he calls at doors with Jehovah Witness leaflets .
Jose has managed to avoid medical treatment for years which his loving fanatical family seem fine about.
But now one of Britain's leading surgeons has offered to treat Jose generously ignoring the life threatening cases in his own country for the chance of working on this freak show by using ultrasound waves to coagulate the blood before the operation. Jose won't be so ugly to the eyes hopefully but he will still be just as stupid.
