It has been just over a year since Connie Culp became the nation's first face transplant recipient.  This week, as she completes the final phase of her procedure, Culp sits down for an exclusive interview with Diane Sawyer to discuss how her life has been transformed by this history making surgery. Culp talks with Sawyer about how she is treated now in public post-surgery as well as the status of her relationship with her ex-husband – the man who shot her in the face nearly six years ago.  Diane Sawyer's exclusive interview airs on Thursday, August 26 on “World News with Diane Sawyer” and will continue Friday on “Good Morning America.”


Diane Sawyer interviewed Ms. Culp in her first television interview in May 2009. “World News with Diane Sawyer” airs at 6:30 p.m., (ET) on the ABC Television Network.  Jon Banner is the executive producer of the broadcast.
