Lilli Sim was born with a rare condition called craniofrontonasal dysplasia (CFND).
Doctor expected that Lilli would only live for a few months as doctors thought that she has Cohen’s syndrome…

She underwent a surgery again when she was barely four.
It was quite difficult for Lilli to make friends at school. Mostly, other students bullied her.

When she reached high school, people cosied up to her and didn’t treat her in any different way than they treated others.
Her family was very concerned about things.
Emily has received surgeries throughout her life.
Having even her jaw broken and then moved.
