S.C.O.R.E.S. Program Helping NYC DV Victim with Scar Removal (Project Lily Update)
Posted Dec 02 2009 12:00am
I want to personally thank those who donated to Project Lily last month, and I would also like to update everyone on Lily's treatment plan through the ASDS. Lily has been accepted by this program and will be starting with laser treatments that will remove some of her old domestic violence scars. According to Lily's new doctor, she is the first SCORES patient that was sent to the office from the NCADV. Lily will be receiving laser treatments starting January 8, 2010 and she will be using your donations for traveling expenses to and from the hospital. As of now, Lily is still waiting for her Face to Face application and Give Back a Smile application to be processed so that she can seek treatments for her teeth and facial scars. Thank you for your support and donations, and I will be periodically updating everyone about her treatments.
"The program sponsored by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) was formally known as the Skin Care Outreach Empowers Survivors or S.C.O.R.E.S. Program and was started in 1999. This program is no longer recognized by ASDS as of 2004 although they still provide volunteers from their membership that offer dermatologic surgery to domestic violence survivors to repair skin injuries (scars, burns, tattoos) on the body caused by an intimate partner or spouse. The toll-free number for the program formally known as S.C.O.R.E.S. is 1-888-892-6702."
