Location: Unknown

Date Of Injury: May 2002

On May 27, 2002, Giovana was just 6-years-old when she suffered an accident involving an ATV that left her with burns to 95% of her body.

“I had to spend a year in a bed. I couldn’t do anything that a 6-year-old would usually do. My nurses and doctors said that I am their hero. They said that I’m a princess and called me a burn survivor. When they called me these things, it made me smile because it’s just like, am I really? Because I got called that every day.”
