Alice Cooper was 3 weeks old when a tiny scratch came up on her eye lid. By Monday she looked like someone had punched her in the face.
She saw her awesome doctor and his face told it all. He held her and said, “I am taking her to see the other doctor in the office.” When he came back to our room, he said, “It’s a Hemangioma and I want you to take her to an ophthalmologist.” In turn, she saw a cardiologist and started on Propranolol. We have seen them since August.
At 3 1/2 weeks, Alice’s hemangioma stopped responding to the Propranolol as much as the doctors would have liked. So we took a 6 1/2 hour trip to Memphis, TN to see a specialist by the name of Dr. Wright. She said the same thing–she will need to have surgery but would not want to do it until she is older. We came back and saw the ophthalmologist again. Now, Alice has an appointment with a plastic surgeon who specializes in eyelid, forehead and eyebrow surgery.
Little Alice’s story is still being written.
While little Alice Cooper may rock her hemangioma, we want to roll in donations for research.
