NAPLES, Fla.- A little girl was reportedly discriminated against in a fast food restaurant. A KFC employee asked the Mississippi 3-year-old and her family to leave because her scars were disturbing customers.
Victoria Wilcher's face was disfigured after being mauled by three pit bulls. WINK News sat down with a local doctor who is about to change the young girls life.
"They thanked me so much. It was actually overwhelming," said Dr. Raymond Peters.
"She's beautiful. She's gorgeous. I'd share my table with her." Those are just some of the Facebook comments coming in from around the world for Victoria Wilcher, a young girl brutally attacked by three pit bulls.
"I want this child to live a normal life. She's all scarred up and people are trying to get rid of her at this point. It's wrong," said Dr. Peters.
Dr. Raymond Peters, of Naples, heard Victoria's story and wanted to help repair her sweet face. Dr. Peters is going to donate his services to Victoria and give her a new eye.
"The individuals who were in the establishment at the time were the ones that created this problem."
This is the picture seen around the world, with a caption reading, "Does this face look scary to you?" It comes after a Jackson Missippi KFC worker asked Victoria to leave because her face was disturbing customers.
"People are very cruel and selfish. They aren't selfless; they are selfish."
So next week, Victoria will visit Dr. Peters so he can repair some of the damage to her face. The gift will also create new bond between Dr. Peters and his new patient.
"I hope I live long enough to see the progress and I will do all I can to help this child."
Dr. Peters says when Victoria leaves, she will leave with the first of many prosthetic eyes.
"She's a 3-year-old child she will replacing that eye every six months to a year and we will do it for her," Dr. Peters told WINK News.
Dr. Peters is providing his services to Victoria for free. He will also be putting her up in a hotel for her visit. A doctor in Las Vegas also heard her story and is also doing her plastic surgery free of charge.
