When the Environmental Protection Agency informed people in St. John the Baptist Parish, Louisiana, last July that the local neoprene plant was emitting a chemical that gave them the highest risk of cancer from air pollution in the country, the information was received not just with horror and sadness but also with a certain sense of validation. For years, many of the people living on this little square of land between the train tracks and the Mississippi River levee have felt they suffered more than their share of illnesses. Troyla Keller has a rash and asthma that abate every time she leaves the neighborhood and worsen when she returns. Augustine Nicholson Dorris had breast cancer and seizures.

Story highlights Katie Stubblefield tried to kill herself with a gun at 18; now, she is the youngest face transplant recipient in US history "I am able to touch my face now, and it feels amazing," Katie says She is featured on the cover of National Geographic's September issue (CNN)As Katie Stubblefield brushed her fingers across her face, she could feel the wound. Her vision is greatly impaired due to her injury, but touching her face allowed her to feel what her doctors were working around the clock to treat. She could feel where her face was swollen. She could feel the portions that were missing. That was before Katie, at 21, became the youngest person in the United States to receive a face transplant. The transplant, performed last year, aims to restore Katie's face structure and functions -- such as chewing, breathing and swallowing -- which were lost in a severe gunshot injury, the haunting outcome of a suicide attempt as a teenager. Now, Katie hopes to use her historic … [Read more...] about Historic face transplant gives suicide survivor a ‘second chance’
