Ollie Was Born With a Rare Condition Which Caused His Brain to Grow Inside His Nose

Ollie Trezise, from Maesteg, Wales, was born with a rare condition which caused his brain to grow through a crack in his skull into his nose – making it stick out like the Disney character, Pinocchio.

As baby Ollie grew, so did his nose – forcing the 21-month-old to undergo several painful operations to enable him to breathe.

To me, Ollie is perfect. He is my little real-life Pinocchio and I couldn’t be prouder of him

But his mum, Amy Poole, 22, says the brave tot is now bombarded with spiteful comments from strangers, who say he is ‘ugly’ and ‘should never have been born’.

Full-time mum-of-two Amy said: “It’s absolutely heart-breaking. Once, a woman told me I should never have given birth to him. I nearly burst into tears.

Amy first discovered that something was different abut Ollie at her 20-week scan, when doctors told her he had unexpected soft tissue growing on his face.

However, she was still shocked when she gave birth to him at Cardiff University Hospital in February 2014.
