Default Miami surgeons tell of removing 2-pound tumor from newborn's face

MIAMI - In the arms of his mother, Jordan Smith looks much like any other 2-month-old, a wide-eyed, chubby-cheeked child in green and yellow overalls and matching cap.

But his mother, school bus driver Kimberly Robinson, 35, and a team of doctors at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center call him a miracle, a child whose life was threatened by a 2-pound tumor that covered his face.

"It was huge, very rare," said Ramzi Younis, a pediatric surgeon. "But as of now, we should not have any doubt that he can lead a normal life."

The remarkable story of Jordan Smith's birth was outlined Wednesday at Jackson Memorial's Holtz Children's Hospital, where the March 25 delivery took place.

This is a truly remarkable story considering some of the medical advice she was given.

What a beautiful baby!!

I saw a documentary recently about a baby girl who was born with a tumor on her sacrum that equaled her own birth weight. The coccyx had to be removed in order to get the tumor off.
