Raised by 259 people in 35 months
My name is Antony Perkins and I have had keloids most of my life for the past 15 years I have had them on my face covering my beard are and behind my left ear I also have them covering my upper torso over the years they have become very painful and the ones on my face are heavy causing neck pain but I don't let it deter me from my passion a job that I love working with children who love me unconditionally I've also been able to deal a little betterwith the stares and whispering when I'm out in public recently I visited Dr Michael Jones in Atlanta who specializes in keloid removal having a90 - 95% success rate he assured me that he can help me with the keloids the problem is my insurance won't cover the procedure claiming cosmetic surgery which is so far from the truth so I'm setting up this page to cover the procedure as well as traveling expenses because I have to travel to New York to have the procedure I thank you for anything you can do help me accomplish what I've tried to have done for years.14632495_1474247232.5255_funddescription

I know people have been asking about what happened with the doctors show and I decided to go with the doctor I originally had Michael Jones and I have answered this question several times. I also chose that doctor because of his I have seen his work and I felt more comfortable with him. I would not be campaigning for money if I didn't need it.

Were the doctors on the show paying for the service ? Or did you simply decide to have a fund raiser and go out on your own without them.

My question is what happen to all the help he was going to get on the doctors program ? That question has probably been asked by others and there is never a response.

I am seriously troubled that your insurance is denying this, saying it is for cosmetic reasons. As a person who has worked in healthcare management as a career, I hope you have appealed up the chain of command with your insurance carrier as well as the insurance commissioner in your state. I saw your story on the local news here in North Dakota. I think the burden of your scars physically and emotionally more than justifies the need that insurance covers your needed surgery!!! I am not questioning your efforts for coverage through insurance, just get so frustrated at this system meant to meet our needs!! I will be hoping and praying for a quick, successful surgery and recovery!

I donated because Tony Perkins seems to be such an awesome person and I appreciate his kind demeanor. I watched the videos for the first time today and I was moved by the way he spoke to his students and helped them see he has feelings just like everyone else. I hope he is able to exceed the financial goal. I will check back later as my funds become available.
