JACKSON, Miss. (June 23, 2014) – This little girl, who was asked to leave a KFC restaurant because of her scars, is getting some help.

Her story moved one doctor so much that he’s offering his services for free.

Victoria Wilcher’s story became national news last week when her family said a restaurant employee asked her to leave.

The 3-year-old has bad scars after being attacked by dogs.

Plastic surgeon Frank Stile heard her story and flew all the way from Las Vegas to Mississippi to meet with her. He fixes scars on the faces of professional fighters, and will do all of his work on Victoria for free. Other people are donating their time and services as well.

“I saw Victoria’s story on the news and social media and I was just very affected by it,” Stile said.

“I can’t thank him enough, I can’t thank his staff enough,” said the girl’s mother, Lindsey.

A doctor in Florida has donated a prosthetic eye, and the plan is for her to receive that in the next couple weeks. Stile will then work on her scars.
