Her husband went from being a loving partner to a violent abuser, which put her in a circle of physical and mental pain.
Silent Suffering Behind a Mask
Saundra hid her physical and mental scars and bruises instead of telling everyone about her terrible experience.
The mask she wore became a powerful symbol of her pain, which she kept to herself.
But the violence kept happening, and by the end, people had life-threatening facial scars and infections.
Brink of Despair and a Beacon of Hope
When they went to the doctor, they were told they only had three days to live.
But Saundra’s unbreakable spirit and the hard work of the medical team beat the odds.
Saundra left her violent husband and started a journey to get her life back.
Along the way, she protected her children. Still, the physical and mental scars were still there.
Because of the marks on her face, which used to be beautiful, she put on a mask to hide herself from everyone’s close scrutiny.
But fate had a good thing waiting for them. Deborah Alessi, who is also a victim of domestic violence and the founder of a helpful non-profit, gave her new hope.
Deborah didn’t just offer moral help as a sign of her support.
Her famous husband, a surgeon, gave Saundra reconstructive surgery as a gift.
This helped her regain some facial functions and feel like herself again.
A New Dawn: From Victim to Victor
Today, Saundra stands tall and is an example for many other women who are being abused at home.
She shows power, resilience, and hope by taking off her mask and showing off her scars with pride.
From now on, Saundra promises to help other survivors and show them and everyone else that even in the darkest times, light can and will shine through.
