Kiana Smith is a normal woman just like anyone….except for one thing. She was born with one of the rarest birthmarks known to man. This birthmark is known as a port wine stain and it is massive. It stretches from one side of her face to the other and makes it down into her neck and chest area. As you may have guessed, she endured a fair amount of ridicule growing up.
She received a series of demeaning nicknames and was even referred to as the “purple people eater”. Kiana has since undergone a series of surgeries in hopes of reducing the birthmark’s size. Laser treatment has also been administered to the area. The surgeries have helped significantly. She no longer has to carry around the same bulk on her face that she was once accustomed to.
