Indian boy whose head hung upside down undergoes life changing surgery (photos)

Are you worried about pimples, a flat butt, bow legs, small boobs, short legs, thin lips or some other body feature that you think is not pleasing to society's standards? Next time you want to think in that direction, just remember that there people out there with REAL body deformities.

A 13-year-old boy who was left an outcast in his village in India because his head hung upside down has risked life changing surgery to straighten his neck.

Mahendra Ahirwar suffers from a rare condition called congenital myopathy which has made his muscles in his neck so weak his head would hang at a 180-degree angle.
His parents Mukesh Ahirwar, 41, and mother Sumitra Ahirwar, 36, spent years taking him to see doctors but no one could help.

According to Mail Online, now the teenager has undergone life-changing surgery by a former NHS surgeon after a mother-of-two from Liverpool set up a crowd-funding page raising £12,000 for treatment.

Spinal surgeon Dr Rajagopalan Krishnan, from Apollo Hospital, in Delhi, performed the operation after Julie Jones made it possible.

This brought tears to my eyes. People exist who have the spirit of love flowing in them. God bless this woman.
