A Hero's Primer for Recovery from Tragedy

Healing Myself - A Hero's Primer for Recovery from TragedyIn 1982, Gari Carter was a model and owner of a successful clothing and gift shop. Traveling with her son to a gift show in Baltimore, she was caught in a heavy snowstorm on a country road in Virginia. A car swerved as it came toward them around a curve, hitting Gari head-on.

Her life was changed forever.

When Gari Carter regained consciousness, she discovered to her horror that her face was gone! Through ten years of multiple surgeries, doctors created a true "bionic woman", gradually rebuilding Gari's jaws, cheekbones, nose and skin, restoring her natural beauty.

But it was Gari's own courage and determination, along with some amazing audio pain-control techniques, which helped her cope and heal her inner scars as well as her face.

This book is a must-read, a universal story of courage, which appeals to all readers

Tuesday, December 6 at 6pm CST

Gari and her eleven-year-old son were driving to a gift show to find more items for her shop before her next buying trip to New York, when they were hit head-on by a car in a snowstorm. Gari’s son had learned CPR the week before in Cub Scouts, and revived his unconscious mother as she was having a near-death experience. Gari’s next ten years were spent in facial surgical reconstruction, using Monroe Products Hemi-Sync® audios to control pain without anesthesia and medication.
