Steltz has been living without a face for 11 years, ever since an accident with a shotgun blew away almost everything above her mouth when she was just 16 years old . Amazingly, Steltz survived and has managed to live a normal life. She learned to read Braille, get around with a cane, and graduated high school at the top of her class. In 2009, she gave birth to a son, who she is raising with her boyfriend she met in a school for the blind.
Now generous doctors are giving a new face to Steltz, who says she wanted the prosthesis "so my son can grow to know his mom looking like a regular person versus a sleep shade."
Tune in tonight for this amazing story of science and humanity. "Twenty-three years in television, and I have never been more inspired," said correspondent Ashleigh Banfield.
