In 2001, former fireman Patrick Hardison was trapped in a house fire in Sanitoba, Mississippi. He suffered extensive burns to his face, losing his ears and eyelids. On August 14, 2015, doctors at NYU Langone completed the most complex face transplant to date.
We conducted an interview with Hardison one year later and learned about some of the hardships he’s experienced.
