After Treatment with Dr. Chernoff

Jade was left with a 12-inch curved scar on her neck.

Insurance covered one scar revision treatment that left little to no improvement. Insurance denied additional treatment to improve Jade's scar.   

In 2017, Jade has received over $20,000 in scar therapy treatments paid for by the Survivors of Violence Foundation. Jade continues to receive treatment through the Foundation to improve

her scar and confidence.
