Ken's fund for keloid removal
Organized by: Ken Patton
Hello my name is Ken Patton. I am 36 years old and I'm from Portland, Oregon. I have a severe skin condition that I contracted from having the chicken pox when I was younger that has altered my overall appearance drastically. My face, head, and other parts of my body have abnormal growths called Keloids which have grown to a substantially large size and have now gotten to a point where they seem to almost be a medical hazard. I've undergone 7 surgeries as well as injections and to no avail have any of them been successful. The reocurrence of them have been somewhat of a strike towards my overall confidence, physical appearance, and health. So I'm asking for any financial assistance that you are able to give because the kind of insurance that I have is out of their particular network that they deal with. I've found the doctor that I want to perform my LAST surgery (Dr. Michael Jones/Keloid Specialist) but there are 2 things that I need to get before I can see him: 1. The surgery is about $40,000 and 2. His closest office is in New York. So to any and all who can possibly help me with this, it would be greatly be appreciated. Thank you in advance for you time, consideration, and gift!
