A Las Vegas doctor flew into Jackson Saturday for the sole purpose of meeting with a little girl who was allegedly asked to leave a Jackson KFC because of her facial scars.

Victoria Wilcher's tough spirit has captured hearts worldwide. And it tugged at the heartstrings of Dr. Frank Stile, a surgeon who wants to do all he can to help Victoria heal.

Dr. Stile met three-year-old Victoria Wilcher for the first time at Jackson's Medgar Evers International Airport Saturday.

The plastic and reconstructive surgeon, who trained at UMC and has expertise minimizing scars on professional fighters flew in from Las Vegas just for a few hours to meet Victoria, a little fighter who was attacked by pit bulls.

"I saw Victoria's story on the news and social media and I was just very affected by it," said Dr. Stile.

Victoria has impacted Dr. Stile so much he's offered his services for free.

Lindsey Turk, one of the attorneys representing Victoria, said she and Victoria's family are filled with gratitude.

"I can't thank him enough, I can't thank his staff enough," said Turk.

Dr. Stile isn't the only one pitching in. He's placed Victoria's picture and story on his foundation's website and says the contributions are overflowing.

"Most notably is Raymond Peter in Naples, Florida, who's a renowned prosthetician. He's donating a prosthetic eye for her," said Dr. Stile.

The plan is to get Victoria to Florida for her new eye within the next week or two.

Down the line Dr. Stile said he'll likely perform cosmetic procedures on Victoria and monitor her facial motor sensory loss.

Victoria's story went viral after her family said she was asked to leave a Jackson KFC because of her scars.

Despite all she's been through Victoria is still an average three-year-old girl.

"She loves high fives, she loves Dr. Seuss books she likes to put her hand on her hip and say girlfriend," said Turk.

The KFC Corp. is now pledging $30,000 to help with Victoria's medical bills.

Victoria's Facebook page "Victoria's Victories" has more than 172,000 likes and is growing.

Dr. Stile said he commends medical staff at UMC for all of their dedication helping Victoria this far.

The attorneys representing Victoria don't have any comment on legal proceedings surrounding the child's case.
