There is a saying that goes; as long as there is life, there is hope. This is probably the mantra Kanisha Anthony chanted after she was left with scars all over her body after getting involved in a fire incident.
According to the story, Kanisha was trapped in a fire in which she not only lost 4 fingers, an ear and most of her hair but also her brothers. Despite all of this, Kanisha remained optimistic and has carried on with life in good spirits.
Kanisha who was rescued by a police officer, revealed that she was confused when she woke up in the hospital and noticed all the changes on her body. According to her, she was made to feed using a tube and photos show a little Kanisha wrapped in bandages.
Kanisha proves herself a resilient woman as she has not only made lemonade out of these lemons life threw at her, but built an amazing empire too.
The lady who Instagram page is filled with motivation messages and quotes has turn her scars into blessing which she wears proudly.
Kanisha believes her life is a true testimony of how amazing God is. She is not only a motivational speaker but a proud author as well.
She has gone on to write a book about her life which she dedicated to the police officer who saved her from that fire, 25 years ago.
Being a burn survivor riddled with scars, there were many things that seemed impossible for her. One of which was pregnancy. In one of her posts, she revealed that she was advised by doctors against taking in, due to the fact that her scarred skin could not handle the stretching of skin that comes with pregnancy.
Kanisha defied all odds and despite warnings, took in and is now a proud mother of 3 wonderful kids with her loving and supportive husband.
Not so many people have the optimism and strength Kanisha Anthony portrays, especially after going through something as horrifying and traumatic as she did. However, with more wonderful and encouraging messages from her, we hope it inspires more people to accept and love themselves the way they are.
