A woman Success Ugoji just shared a touching story about a lady named Kanisha Anthony…
“At the age of 4, I was in a house fire. I remember being trapped by a
room full of fire than being pull out of the window by my big toe. I was
in the house with my mom and 3 brothers… two brothers (age 2 and 6) did
not make it out. I was sent to one hospital where they weren’t able to
do any thing for me, then flown to another.
By the time I made it there, my heart had stopped.
My mother had been told her 3rd baby died. After a few minutes, I was
given another chance at life. And I don’t take it for granted at all. I
was burned over 60% of my body, lost my 4 fingers, lost my hair that

life. I am married. In this photo, I am pregnant with my 3rd child. I
am blessed. No matter what you are going through in life know that you
have been picked personally to live the life you are living. Through
your bad days and through the good, you are here!!!”

Kanisha had the courage to go through this pain, not once, but three
times. Now, she inspires others to look beyond their scars and learn to
live without fear of what people will think. She will soon release her
new book sharing her story with the world.”
