Child’s family won’t directly accept KFC donation
Question of the Day
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The family who says their 3-year-old girl was asked to leave a KFC restaurant because her scars disturbed customers won’t directly accept a $30,000 donation but instead wants the money given to the foundation of a doctor who will work on her face, according to an attorney’s statement.
“The family didn’t think it was appropriate to accept KFC’s donation, but KFC is invited to make a donation to the Frank Stile foundation,” Bill Kellum said in a statement Wednesday.
Stile is a Las Vegas physician who has offered to donate his services to work on Victoria Wilcher’s face, scarred from a pit bull mauling.
The restaurant chain had pledged the money to help with the medical bills of the 3-year-old, even though it says an investigation concluded that there was no proof that any employee asked her to leave the Jackson restaurant.
Kellum said the child’s family stands by the claim.
Victoria was mauled by three pit bulls in April at the home of her grandfather, Donald Mullins of Simpson County. She lost her right eye and suffered multiple facial fractures.
Kellum told The Clarion-Ledger (http://on.thec-l.com/1odvGfn) that the child and her mother and grandmother will fly to Florida on Monday for a preliminary examination at the Raymond E. Peters of the Center for Custom Prosthetics in Naples. He said the center has offered to provide Victoria with a prosthetic eye. Stile will attach the prosthetic eye in a later surgery.
