Need no or low cost reconstructive surgery for friend who had a radical vulvectomy

My friend 43 yrs. old had radiation and a complete removal of all her sex organs. The doctor butchered her, and we cannot find a doctor that will take on any kind of reconstruction for free or reduced price. She has been left with a gaping gash for privates and a tube just hanging out of where her urethra/clitoris was, and a colostomy bag. We thought of her going to see a transsexual specialist but again, she has no medical insurance. Does anyone know of any resources she can utilize for this rare and devistating procedure? We wrote to Dr. Kevin Brenner in LA and he could not do it, yet he repairs female circumcisions all the time, I guess this was too much for too little benefit to his practice.
