Where to go from here
The doctor from Cincinnati referred me to a doctor in California. He was very informative. After sending him pictures of my vitiligo he estimated the cost of surgery to be $14,000, not including hospital stay. Of course insurance will not pay a dime because it is considered cosmetic. I have since then written the Ellen show and Tyra show to see if they would talk about this topic and I have heard nothing. The reason I am now coming out about this more than ever is beacause I am just tired of living like this. I am getting older and I know that anything is possible,dreams can come true and I am not going to give up just yet. People that do not have vitiligo may not understand, but those of us that do knows what it feels like to have people stare and say things under their breath. If anyone reading this has vitiligo please send me your pics, maybe you can give me some advice.
