This is sad!
Many people are born with birthmarks, moles, and other au naturel markings that are seen as nothing but small but special little evidences of uniqueness. It’s quite normal to have little spot here and there that’s unique only to you, and even many women call their beloved moles “beauty marks.” But sometimes, nature goes a little too far and a little boy is born with a mole on his back so big that it keeps him from living a normal life.
Little Didier Montalvo is a boy from Columbia who was born with a medical disorder known as Congenital Melanocytic Nevus – AKA giant mole disease. In this case, Didier’s mole was so big that it took up his entire back (a back-end view in photographs makes him resemble a ninja turtle just a little) and posed such a health risk that it was either remove the mole or possibly suffer from a multitude of deteriorating health effects. Literally, the mole was taking all his nourishment and feeding itself like a parasitic monster!
Luckily, Didier was able to undergo a special type of surgery that successfully separated him from his giant mole, allowing him to live a normal life, free from physical hindrances.
But the surgery also helped him live a normal life in the eyes of the public. Prior to this surgery, people in his community were afraid to touch or go near Didier because they were afraid that his mole was some kind of a manifestation of an evil spirit. The people of the community also feared that if they touched him, they too would contract whatever he had (an obviously false assumption).
Now, thanks to his surgery, Didier will no longer be hindered or bothered by people’s ignorant superstitions. But Who cares what they think? The cool thing now is that Didier can finally run around and play like a normal little boy.
