Kanisha Anthony is a 28-year-old mother-of-three who has been through more trauma than most women her age, yet she has a positive outlook on life in spite of them.
Kanisha was trapped in a house fire at the age of 4. Two of her brothers died in the fire while Kanisha, her mother, and one of her brothers survived miraculously. It’s a surprise she survived because her heart stopped beating for about 4 minutes immediately following the fire incident.
She lost 4 of her fingers, an ear, and all of her hair in the fire. She also had burns on over 60% of her body, including on her stomach and she was told she could never have children. But as God would have it, she conceived. She was then told that the burnt skin of her tummy could not stretch to accommodate children. She went ahead to carry the pregnancy to term though she had to live with daily excruciating pain as her tummy stretched.
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.
