Myself A Hero's Primer for Recovery from Tragedy
In 1982, Gari Carter was a model and owner of a successful clothing and gift shop. Traveling with her son to a gift show in Baltimore, she was caught in a heavy snowstorm on a country road in Virginia. A car swerved as it came toward them around a curve, hitting Gari head-on.
Her life was changed forever.
When Gari Carter regained consciousness, she discovered to her horror that her face was gone! Through ten years of multiple surgeries, doctors created a true "bionic woman", gradually rebuilding Gari's jaws, cheekbones, nose and skin, restoring her natural beauty.
But it was Gari's own courage and determination, along with some amazing audio pain-control techniques, which helped her cope and heal her inner scars as well as her face.
This book is a must-read, a universal story of courage, which appeals to all readers
