Charla Nash Denied Face And Hand Transplant

| Filed under: Sad Sad


So sad!

Charla Nash, the woman that was mauled and blinded by a chimpanzee last year, has been told by an Ohio hospital that it cannot perform a face and hand transplant for her.

The Cleveland Clinic is where the nation's first face transplant was conducted.

Nash and her family are looking into other hospitals to take on the surgery, which has to be done simultaneously and come from the same donor.

The chimpanzee attacked Nash after its owner asked her to help lure the animal back into her house. The chimp ripped off Charla's hands, nose, lips and eyelids. The transplant would be amazing as it would help her smell, breathe, eat and in general be more independent.

The world of medicine is always improving and we sincerely hope there is a facility that can help Charla and her family.

  12. 12

    Man, Oprah is F. A. T. Wouldn't you think at some point on the way up she'd S. T. O. P. eating so goddamned much?!

  16. 16

    fuck her, idiot got what she deserved

  17. 17

    Why is she being denied?

  18. 18

    Americans are mental, what idiot made a law allowing people to keep Chimps as pets.

    Only in America…

  19. 19

    GOOD FOR HER!!! a chimp is a WILD animal, that belongs in the WILD. when will people learn that you can't have WILD ANIMALS AS PETS!!!!!!! it is unfair to both the animal and the human.

  20. 20

    sooo sadd OMGGGG

  21. 21

    did you even read the story you ape-man perez?
    "The clinic does not believe it has the capability to do the hand transplant surgery, Monaco said. He said it has not ruled out the possibility of some type of collaboration with another hospital."

  22. 22

    Fucking a, Perez. The Cleveland Clinic is not just some "ohio hospital." It is a world-renowned medical institution. Look it up. So it's not like she's being denied by people who don't know what they're doing.

  23. 23

    So sad! I hope that there is a facility that can help her.

  24. 24

    I would say that not every hospital is equipped to do these transplants. You need to go to a world class place for that.

  25. 25

    keeping a chimp as a pet? yeah, there's a great fucking idea.

  26. 26

    after that freakout, i bet it was bedtime for bonzo, permanently.

    I bawled my eyes out when I saw that that lady on Oprah. So so terrible what happened to her. Yet despite everything she chooses so have a positive outlook- amazingly positive, I don't think I could be anywhere as brave as her. I also thought it was disrespectful that Oprah asked her to reveal her face.

  28. 28

    Very sad. I was surprised when I read what injuries that chimpanzee did to her. It goes to show that wild animals should NOT be pets.

    My heart goes out to her and I hope she keeps strong. I'm sure that the medical world will be able to help her out in due time.

  29. 29

    Shame on me for complain about every little thing that goes bad in my life, and there is she, showing me what faith is and want to live even in her situation
    No more complains promise.

    I'm not even a doctor and I could give you a hundred reasons why this woman will never be a candidate for both these procedures. Nevermind that the first attempt at this was only tried within the year, and he died of a heart attack brought on from complications.

  31. 31

    Re: alfabravo – HOW KIND ARE YOU????

  32. 32

    I think if she knows she could die it is her choice. A Dr. here just did a face lift and 2 hours of other nips and tucks on an 85 year old patient. Life is your choice to give to live to lose or take. It is your life to do with as you see please.

  33. 33

    as you please!!! LOL!!!

  34. 34

    FYI, The Cleveland Clinic is not a "hospital in Ohio." It is one of the most prestigious medical centers in the United States. You must do some research!

  35. 35

    This is where I don't believe in Karma. Wat has this individual done to deserve this. She was trying to help. I don't believe in Karma. It doesn't add up. I send all my luv to u Charla Nash.

  36. 36

    I do believe that within 10 years it will be possible for Charla Nash to get a semblance of a face, but what I wish even more for her is when medicine is able to turn blind people into non-blind.

    I hope someone steps up and helps her. Its terrible what happened to her.

  38. 38

    Re: Brides – You are stupid Oprah didn't tell her to show her face, Oprah asked if she wanted to show her face, but told her it was up to her. You people's hate and jealousy is funny, you make up stuff in your own head. For someone who said they watched the show I guess you have selective memory, or you hear what you want to hear.

  39. 39

    this is SO SAD!
    I hope along the way someone can perform the surgeries she needs

    when i saw her face…:[ gawd it wasn't even her fault, the OWNER told her to help her get the chimp. how horrible, and who the hell owns a chimp??? they need to be in their natural environment or at the zoo where they can be taken proper care of. this should tell everyone to gtfo if you want to own exotic or wild animals. dogs and w/e domestic animals are already kinda dangerous but at least they can be trained and made for homes, but this is just stupid. you can probably adopt a child who needs a home instead. but if you can't take care of anything that lives and breathe then live by yourself!
