Chimpanzee attack victim Charla Nash before she was attacked by a chimpanzee and a recent photo released by Brigham and Women's Hospital in Massachussetts on Thursday after face transplant surgery. Nash was mauled by a chimpanzee in 2009 and received the transplant in May 2011 at the hospital. Nash, 57, said in a statement she’s looking forward to doing things she once took for granted, including being able to smell, eat normally, speak clearly and kiss loved ones.
