EXCERPT from LA Times:

“Dr. Peter H. Grossman, co-director of the Grossman Burn Centers based  in Sherman Oaks, said his wife, Rebecca Grossman, who chairs the Calabasas-based Grossman Burn Foundation, saw Aisha on television and knew they could help her.

The foundation paid to bring Aisha to Los Angeles on Thursday, found a host family for her to stay with and is funding her treatment, Grossman said. That could include a prosthetic nose or reconstruction of her nose and ears using bone, tissue and cartilage from the rest of her body, he said.

‘What I’d love to be able to do with Aisha is to give her a permanent solution from her own body,’ said Grossman, who planned to meet with her in the coming days.”
