Nenna,
My son Michael has a PWS on his rt cheek, ear, & neck. Our pedi told us to wait until he was a year old to see if it faded, it never did so we were sent to a dermatologist in Nashville. Unfortunately, the insurance comp denied his laser surg. we appealed it & was denied again. We are stuck..we can't really afford to pay for it out of pocket...but i am a teacher and i see first hand how kids are sometimes teased and want to get this taken care of before he starts school. My sons PWS has gotten darker (he is now 3yrs old) I do feel that it is necessary to have it lasered. I am hoping for you that your insurance comp will cover the expense...I am still trying to find some way to pay for my sons treatments! Best of Luck
