A Quebec woman who was disfigured in an acid attack will have her scars treated by laser surgery in the United States — thanks to Anderson Cooper's show.

Tanya St-Arnauld appeared on "Anderson Live" on Wednesday in New York City, where she received the news that a Miami-based dermatologist would fly her down for treatment.

St-Arnauld was allegedly attacked by her ex-boyfriend after an argument last August near Montreal.

She suffered serious burns to her head and upper body, and was in a medically induced coma for days. Though she has spent months in rehab, she still has extensive scars and must wear a wig.

On the talk show, she discussed the events that led to the attack, which police say was with concrete cleaner.

Nikolas Stefanatos of Brossard, Que., was charged in the attack and remains behind bars after a judge refused to grant him bail last October.

He returns to court next month.
