Accidents always happen, but that does not mean people have to go through these painful moments. Some people lose their loved ones, including their parents, children, romantic partner, and even their pets. But individuals also suffer in accidents, and the consequences are brutal. House fires are not uncommon to hear about in the news, but it is always a grim reminder that you are not safe, even in your own home.
This is the painful yet heartwarming story of a woman who had to undergo a transformation after surviving a fire incident. She might look physically unattractive for many people, but she has an innocent, pure heart that can captivate any human being.
Read the story below and see her marvelous transformation.
Harley Dabbs is an amazing, 21-year-old woman from Reidsville in North California. When she was just three years old, her house went down in flames and badly burned her body.
Because of the fire incident, 80% of Harley's body was burned and her beautiful face became disfigured. She was also told that her eyebrows would never grow back. Worse, her survival rate was only 2%.
Thankfully, she lived longer than expected. Still, Harley Dabbs still had to visit the Shriners Children's Hospital that is located in Ohio so that she could be operated on every time. Skin operations were a part of her life because she wanted to look better.
Harley Dabbs would not be getting her eyebrows back, but thankfully there are eyebrow implants. Thus, the hospital became Harley's second home because of the care she received from the doctors and the support she received from other patients.
Even if Harley was happy at the hospital, others were not so kind to her. She always wore clothing that fully covered her body because she would be bullied by other people. The bullying was so bad that Harley developed depression. But Harley was brave, so she had this wonderful and appropriate tattoo of a phoenix.
Harley posted her story on the social network Facebook with the hope that others in a similar situation would feel better about themselves.
