On September 30, 2016 in Tallapoosa, Georgia, a woman named Courtney Waldon was involved in a horrific campfire accident when she turned 27-years-old, giving her severe burns. Her husband had lit the fire himself, but the flames shot up unexpectedly, in Courtney’s direction! Her burns covered at least 40% of her body. Courtney stayed in the ICU Burn Unit, for a period of 51 days – and underwent 7 skin grafting surgeries. Unfortunately for her, she needed at least 12 more procedures – and this was taking a toll on her family’s finances.
After Courtney was released from the ICU, her husband announced to her that he would like a divorce, leaving her alone with their 4-year-old daughter, Caroline. With severe medical bills to pay and no income, Courtney and her daughter were left homeless. Luckily for the mother-daughter duo, local residents and members of the church has a special surprise for them – and it would change their lives forever.
