A three-year-old girl and her grandmother made headlines after she claimed that they had been kicked out of KFC because of the little girls scared face. She now has a new prosthetic eye from a hospital in Florida. Read more on the story after the jump!


The little girl, named Victoria Wilcher was given a prosthetic eye after she was mauled by her grandfather’s dog. She will need at least 200 surgeries to help repair her face. She will need around 15 to 20 prosthetic eyes before she has finished growing. Her grandmother claimed that they were asked to leave because her face was disrupting the customers.

The Wilcher family asked KFC to donate money to the foundation of the plastic surgeon, Dr Frank Stile, in which they donated $30,000. Dr Frank Stile is one of the two doctors who agreed to work on Victoria’s injuries for free. A specialist stated, “It’s the first step on a long journey…If it helps them, it’s a gratification you just can’t get everyday.” Dr Stile will help reconstruct Victoria’s right lower eyelid and reduce her scars in order to restore feeling in part of her face. Over $100,000 was donated via GoFundMe.com, which will also go towards Victoria’s medical care.
