Sue Thoms of the Grand Rapids Press / MLive.com wrote three wonderful stories on Charlotte which have been published online in the past 48 hours and will appear in print some time this week.
Sue met with the Ponces last week at a local park, where she shared details on how the community has come together to support Charlotte and the Ponces and to describe in further detail her upcoming procedures. As a health / medical reporter, Sue did an excellent job of explaining some of the details on how they will reconstruct Charlotte’s face.
Read the stories:
- Spring Lake girl mauled by raccoon gets outpouring of support as she prepares for reconstructive surgery
- ‘She’s my hero,’ adoptive mom says of Spring Lake girl who survived raccoon attack in infancy
- Plastic surgeon says facial reconstruction surgery for girl mauled by raccoon among most difficult
