She's a little Iraqi girl with the life-threatening hemangiomas in her head. For the latest check out prime mover Chief Wiggles (note that the pictures at this link are *after* much surgery - another link there shows you how she was found). For a history of the whole affair check Dean's World.
(With enough research I could probably dig up dozens of other cases of the military and others going the extra mile for some Iraqi kids with problems. For instance, there's Asma Muhana. But I haven't been able to find a followup on her.)
