There are certain times in our lives where life forces us to pause and breathe in everything that has happened to us. Sometimes those moments are so memorable that people write about them. Some just take in the moment and move one. Others want to share their moment and do something to commemorate everything they overcame. When you are injured because of the negligent behavior of someone else, it is hard not to get angry. If you are the family member of someone who was hurt it is hard not to get angry. When the injury permanently disfigures you, it takes all the courage you can muster to move one and move forward.

Burn injuries do not happen often, but when they do they can be severe. There are four types of burns:
Burns typically come from fire or heat, but they can also come from chemicals. Car accidents, house fires, electrical fires, and other scenarios can contribute to how burn injuries happen.
In 1978, Elizabeth Garcia was 7 years old when her family was traveling back from visiting her aunt who just had a new baby. While waiting at a stop light, Garcia’s family truck was struck from the rear end by a drunk driver driving 95 MPH. From the impact, the truck flipped over and caught on fire. Elizabeth and her brother were on fire. Her grandmother did not survive. 85% of Elizabeth’s body suffered burns. Firefighters and emergency medics were trying to calm her down, but the odds were not in her favor. However, after 11 months of recovery, Elizabeth beat the odds. 40 years later she is choosing to find the heroes who saved her to help bring closure to her story.
