Christy Tucker Sims  MCDONOUGH, GA
Hello my name is Christy Sims and "I am caught between disaster and destiny". I am a survivor of domestic violence and acid attack. I was attacked by my ex-boyfriend a little over 2 years ago and incurred 3rd and 4th degree burns to over 20 percent of my body, including my entire face. My story has been featured nationally and internationally for the past two years. Recently my abuser was finally brought to justice and is now serving 20 years in prison. Prior to being attacked on April 28, 2013, I had achieved my Master's degree and I was a practicing Mental Health Counselor. However, due to my severe disfigurement and long recovery, I have been unemployed since that time. My goal is to return to my counseling practice and to begin rebuilding my life once I have completed a few more surgeries. I have had 13 surgeries thus far to rebuild my face and body, but I need a few more and because I have not been able to work, I am still struggling financially.  All of my surgeries are performed by Dr. Robert Spence and Dr. LeAnn Price of the Good Samaritan Hospital Burn Recontruction Center in Baltimore, MD. This is not plastic surgery and although I appreciate the doctor who was featured in the media last year on Channel 2 for offering pro bono work, he has never done any pro bono surgeries for me and likely will not because my injuries require burn reconstruction, which is a specialty.  All of my surgeries have been for a cost. Originally my foundation, the Christy Sims Foundation was started to raise funds for my recovery, however, because we are now a 501 c3 non-profit, and I elected to continue serving the organization, funds to CSF can no longer benefit me personally. In essence, I am now helping other survivors, but I still need help. I am indeed caught between disaster and destiny.  Please help me rebuild my life for me and two children, Chris and Elon. Thank you so much. I appreciate every dollar.
