Mum branded “toad” by cruel bullies over 6,000 tumours covering her body reveals dramatic transformation after undergoing surgery

A mum whose body was covered with up to 6,000 tumours has revealed her skin’s dramatic transformation following surgery.
Libby Huffer, 45, said she was branded “lizard breath” and “toad” by playground bullies during decades of abuse over her condition.

Libby has Neurofibromatosis, a genetic neurological disorder which causes non-cancerous bumps to form on her body wherever nerves are present.

An outbreak of electrodessication surgery to kill off 1,000 of the ‘bumps’ on her face and the tissue causing the growths.

To lessen the scarring, she then had C02 laser surgery, which smooths out the skin and reduces the appearances of marks.

She’s noticed a ‘huge difference’ in her appearance since her surgery but hopes that others will be more understanding towards people battling with Neurofibromatosis.

“I have had about 1,000 of the fibromas removed so far.

“My friends and family say that I look great and they notice a huge difference.

“My life hasn’t been any different since surgery other than I have raised lots of awareness for NF, which has always been my biggest goal.

“There’s still a long way to go to heal the emotional damage I’ve undergone over the years, but I know that will only improve over time.

“The more surgeries I have, the more confident I will become and that will help to erase some of my painful memories.”

Libby was a teenager, when hundreds of bumps caused by Neurofibromatosis 1 developed on her skin – the condition affects one in 2,500 people.
