Discovery Health Carolyn Thomas
Dubbed "The Woman without a Face" by the national media, Carolyn survived a near fatal shooting at point blank range in December of 2003, when her estranged boyfriend shot and killed her mother then turned his .44 magnum revolver on her. Carolyn lost 80% of her face in the tragedy and was left blind in her right eye. Carolyn's mouth, nose and upper jaw were so damaged, she was forced to breathe through a tracheotomy tube and consume liquids from an opening in her stomach for two years after the shooting. Carolyn fought back to reclaim her life and her facial features by undergoing ten operations over a year and a half period. Carolyn also managed to gather her courage to face her abuser in court for the first time since the brutal attack, all of which is documented in this riveting and candid show.
