Pasco mom looking for help after dog attack – FOX 13 News

The mother of a 7-year-old girl attacked by a pit bull last week says she’s running out of options to fix her daughter’s face.

“I can’t afford plastic surgery, and Medicaid’s not going to cover it,” Fannie Posada said. “Obviously the owner of the dog is not financially stable to pay for my daughter’s face to be fixed. She’s gonna need reconstructive plastic surgery.”

Posada rushed her daughter Salena to the hospital late Wednesday night. Doctors put 28 stitches in her left cheek, cleaned her up, and sent her home.

Posada is worried about not only the emotional scar from the attack, but also those scars she believes her daughter will have the rest of her life.

“I want to make her feel beautiful again. I don’t want to have her waking up in the middle of the night screaming and crying and begging to understand how to deal with that,” Posada explained.

As is routine, several children were playing with the pit bull named “Bubba” last Wednesday. Salena leaned in to give Bubba a hug goodbye and he latched onto her face.
