A woman who suffered emotional torture as well as physical abuse for more than a decade has come out to become a light and a voice to other women facing similar plights. Here's how. 

In the last few years, there has been an increased awareness of several topics that were, prior to this time, swept under the carpet and dismissed as insignificant but had deep consequences on victims.

Presently in the world, survivors are fortunately having a voice and not just being heard but working towards effecting a change and being a light to others in similar situations as themselves.

A recent inspiring story involves Saundra Crockett, a victim of domestic violence who turned her life around and became a beacon of hope to other women struggling with abuse.

Crockett had a lot to look forward to as a young adult, and marriage looked like a delightful experience. But little did she know that she was getting married to an abuser who would go on to change her life.

Crockett ended up getting married to an abuser with whom she shared two children, but her husband's addiction did more harm than good to the growing family and caused them to lose their home.

Her marriage was not the first abuse Crockett experienced in her life. As a little girl, she had an abusive father, and when she was a teenager, she ended up on the street in the midst of drug addicts.

Her husband, who was an ex-marine, added more fuel to the fires her life had gone through, and all hell broke loose on her 28th birthday when she caught her husband cheating. Shockingly, he beat her so badly that her face got infected.

The infection ate away her face, and there were questions of whether she would survive the attack. The first hospital she was taken to predicted that she had three days to live and would not make it out of the pain.

After undergoing over 20 surgeries, Crockett's face became disfigured for life, and she had to wear a facemask for 12 years to hide the shape of her face caused by an abusive husband.

After having the courage to divorce her abusive husband, Crockett welcomed a third child with another partner, but things turned for the worse, and she lost both her home and custody of her children.

It was at this point she met an initiative called "Face Forward," and luckily, she got her face fixed. Since then, she has become a source of hope to others going through abusive relationships.
