Six months ago, Lisa Alamia underwent jaw surgery for an overbite.  After the surgery, Lisa woke up with a British accent.  She has been diagnosed with Foreign Accent Syndrome; it has only affected 100 people worldwide in the last 100 years.  Lisa's oldest daughter thought she was faking it, but then she saw the paperwork from the doctor with the diagnosis.  Lisa said she hopes to get her normal accent back one day.
