Woman fights to get prosthetic nose

tokar-230730_10150206123959873_163256989872_6886462_4183930_n.jpgA woman whose nose was ripped off by a pit bull is appealing to Quebec's minister of health to intervene and pay for a new prosthetic nose. That's because Quebec's public insurance provider -- the RAMQ won't pay for it. Marie-Helene Tokar was disfigured when her neighbour's dog jumped her near her home in Saint-Hippolyte in the Laurentians.
