‘If you’re looking for someone with your eyes, you will run from someone like me.
But if you are looking for someone with your heart you’ll discover that I am someone you could love.”
Eddy Newton

Eddy’s Story

Eddy was born Edward Albert Newton III, in Loma Linda, California. At the early age of three, Eddy was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis, more commonly known as Elephant Man’s disease. The doctors said he wouldn’t live past eight, but Eddy has defied the odds. Eddy has endured scores of surgeries to remove painful life-threatening tumors, including a 14 ½ hour surgery where Eddy had a 7 ½ tumor removed from his neck and lost his right ear.

Later in life Eddy suffered with self-esteem issues, like so many young adults.  At a low point, Eddy even joined a traveling circus as a sideshow freak. He was known as The Man with Two Faces. When he wasn’t on stage, Eddy had to wear a hood covering his distinct looking face, so no one could get a “free look.” 

Today, Eddy uses his life story and his single unique appearance to help children and teens cope with self-esteem issues and combat the terrifying bullying epidemic in our schools.
