A burnt survivor, Kanisha Anthony, has dedicated her book to the police officer who saved her life from a fire that wanted to consume her.
Below are pictures showing her journey since the incidence 25 years ago and also the police officer who showed up at her book signing.
As shared by @fittrainers:
”25 years ago a police officer risked his life by climbing into a 4 year old little girl’s window and saving her from a fire that was quickly taking her life away. 25 years later the same girl wrote a book about her life as a burn survivor and searched high and low for that police officer. Yesterday he showed up at her book signing and she was able to dedicate her book to him and personally thank him for saving her life”.

In her Instagram page, Kanisha Anthony spoke of how her burnt skin stretched to an unbearable extent when she got pregnant. She however found the pains worthy when she gave birth to a lovely child with adorable smile.
”THE hardest most painful pregnancy I’ve had. My skin stretched until it couldn’t stretch no more. I cried and threw up everyday until the day i had him. but every single second of pain was worth seeing this handsome smile everyday. Happy Birthday baby boy #twoyearsold#mamasboy #loveyoutothemoonandback.”
In another post, she said the reason why she tells her story is because she wants other people to be encourage to tell theirs as well.
”So I tell my story in hopes it will encourage more and help others heal. Remember when you tell your story you free yourself and give other people permission to acknowledge their own story. Your scars (inside or out) can be someone else’s sign of hope”.
