In the last six months, Johanna Orozco has recovered from a shotgun blast to the face and reconstructive surgery. That would have been enough, but then, there's also the trial of the teen who shot her, her former boyfriend. As she told Plain Dealer reporter Rachel Dissell, "When he actually pleaded guilty, it was more of a relief in my heart than anything else." On the program, we'll talk to Dissell and photographer Gus Chan who spent much of the last six months in operating rooms and by hospital beds, chronicling Orozco's journey. We'll also learn about the surgical science behind facial reconstructions and we'll talk about what lessons Orozco's story holds for teens and parents today. Join us, Tuesday morning at nine.
