Five months ago, we brought you the story of Claire DeCant, who had a vascular birthmark on her face.
Her mom's fight with her insurance company prompted her to reach out and help other parents.
Davina DeCant is determined to make sure no other family goes through what she did, to help their child.
At 23 months, Claire DeCant is an active little girl and always smiling.
You wouldn't know by looking at her that just five months ago, she had a tennis ball-size vascular tumor under her left eye, called a hemangioma.
Her parents' insurance at the time, wouldn't cover the procedure, deeming it cosmetic.
So Davina did some research and found the Vascular Birthmarks Foundation, which put her in touch with a doctor who performed Claire's surgery.
The foundation was started by Linda Rozell-Shannon in 1994 after her daughter got a hemangioma.
After she heard what the DeCants went through Linda called Davina.
"She contacted me and asked if I would like to start something because she saw how passionate I was and how hard I worked against Kaiser to get my daughter's hemangioma taken care of." said DeCant.
It's estimated one in ten babies will develop a hemangioma or other vascular birthmark. Many are cosmetic and go away on their own, but Davina says Claire's interfered with her sight and now her 4-month-old son Cannon has one on his collarbone, she says, will eventually interfere his breathing.
Now, Davina has made it her mission to educate families about their options.
"I really, really want to help raise awareness about this to families that are at the whim of insurance companies who say it's a cosmetic thing and they wont pay for it."
The hair salon Davina works for is holding a fundraiser for the Vascular Birthmarks Foundation to help people who need treatment, but may not have the means.
The event is May 15th at the Hair Gallery at 9600 Retail Drive in Bakersfield.
For a $10 donation, you can get your nails done, a hair extension or hair rub in the color purple.
