Jealous Woman Set Suspected Mistress On Fire, See How She Looks Now!
Woman Burned and Left for Dead Recieves Worse News, Instead She Turns It Into Something Amazing
There’s something about the human condition that can be absolutely inspiring. It can also enrage others. In Dana Vulin’s case, it was a little bit of both.
At 25, Vulin had just graduated, was beautiful, and already becoming successful. As the morning of February 16, 2012 was starting, something tragic happened.
Two people, a man and a woman, broke into Vulin’s home. The woman “doused [her] with methylated spirits” and then proceeded to ignite her. As Vulin lay there on the floor burning, the woman laughed. The two of them then left Vulin there to die.
But she didn’t. Despite the fire covering her 64 percent of her body in third-degree burns, Vulin lived.
The burns and trauma placed her in a coma for 10 days. In the hospital, she was wrapped in bandages that required constant changing to stave off any infections. Doctors needed to monitor her 24/7 to keep her condition from worsening.
When she woke, she didn’t recognize herself. Her body was disfigured, raw, and painful. Knots of tendons, muscle, and hardened skin were easily visible. Dark patches of damaged body tissue and skin clung to her. The pain was immense.
Yet, Vulin decided to do something about it. She grew strong. She started a website. She made a vow to move through it.
On her website, DanaVulin.com.au, she wrote, “I’m going to make this burn my [expletive], I’m going to kick it in the face and I am going to rock scars, look hot with my scarred-up body and just make this work.”
She did. She started the long road to recovery.
Yet, in 2013, barely a year after the horrific injuries, a routine pap smear revealed something else — she had cervical cancer.
If you think her courage stopped here, or that she gave up, you’d be wrong. You’d be very wrong. Vulin only challenged it, too.
Given her injuries and her body’s condition, her odds at recovering from cancer were slim. Any infection could impede her progress and overrun her immune system. Death could be a simple cold away.
Instead, Vulin beat cancer, too, and recovered.
Now, nearly three years later and multiple reconstructive surgeries later, Vulin is still accomplished. She wears her scars freely. She’s beautiful. She’s the one laughing now at the people who left her to die.
