Tony Perkins is a public school teacher in St. Louis. Mr. Perkins has suffered with keloids on his neck and torso for 15 years. Although keloids are benign growths, the weight of them has caused neck pain for Tony. He had undergone several surgeries previously and noticed that the keloids would return within a few months. Mr. Perkins connected with Dr. Michael Jones, a cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon with offices in Atlanta and in New York, and has been subject to the science behind radiation treatment for keloid treatment after removal.
The St. Louis American recently sat down with Mr. Perkins to discuss his progress since interviewing him a year ago. You can read the full article here. If you would like to donate to Tony’s medical expenses, you can find his GoFundMe page here.
