My Book



Survivor Not Victim,

Stories Behind My Scars

What does it mean to be a survivor, and not a victim, when life throws you a curveball?

My name is Michelle, and I am a burn survivor. My life was forever changed when, at the young age of two, I was burned on over 91% of my body in a house fire. This is my story of hope as I struggled through endless surgeries and navigated a life with scars. A life where I decided to stand up to victimhood and be a survivor. My hope is to inspire others to do the same.

My purpose is to raise awareness about burn injuries and burn survivors, uncovering the lengthy recovery process we must endure - physically, mentally, and emotionally. As well as to help the reader by providing them with survival lessons I have learned throughout my journey. By becoming a survivor rather than a victim, one can learn to thrive, inspire, and lead others.
