Meet Hali Maimaiti. He is 8 years old from Heping, China. He was born with a Extremely large Mole on his back.
When he was first born doctors told his mother Musai Maimaiti that they would have to wait to operate on him until he was older. The growth is harder and darker resembling a turtle shell.
His friends would ridicule and bully him and gave him the nickname “Turtle boy”
Earlier this month he finally was operated on. It took 2 hours to remove the turtle shell. Afterwards Hali admitted that the operation was painful but is comforted by though of being bale to go outside in sun with his shirt off and won’t have to hear the other children laughing at him anymore.
Throughout this whole ordeal Hali has shown tremendous courage and an amazing attitude. Always smiling and being optimistic
