The stands and grass surrounding Gillette Stadium were filled with anxious and excited fans Thursday morning.

The massive tumor disfiguring his face engulfs his upper lip, left eye and cheek, and cruelly twists his nose to the right side of his face. What is certain, however, is that at the time the picture was taken, in his remote, desperately impoverished corner of Haiti, the boy - Junior Jean Louis - couldn't have known that in just a few years' time he would be in the United States, happily touring Gillette Stadium with a professional soccer player, and that the majority of his tumor would be gone. "I was surprised that after my surgeries, I got to see this pretty place," Junior said of …
