Girl with half a brain

Girl living normally after half her brain was removed to stop Rasmussen's encephalitis. Obligatory comparison to our commander in chief elided because... well... this is kinda cool and freaky and stands on its own, and frankly it sounds like she's doing better than him.

Ben Carson is known for, among other things, performing this surgery (called a cerebral hemispherectomy). He also has a scholarship program called the Carson Scholars program. Honestly, reading about him reminds me of just how little I've accomplished here at the keyboard.
