Assiya’s Story

It was a terrible accident! Assiya, the second youngest child of five and the only girl in the family, was severely burned over 70% of her body when her jacket caught fire. She was only four years old. For her burns, Assiya received care in her hometown where doctors thought she would not make it. Miraculously, she survived.

However, as Assiya healed, the scar tissue that formed made her joints immobile. Sadly, doctors in Kazakhstan did not have the proper equipment to care for her burns. Assiya began to develop huge areas of additional scarring from the treatment.

When the Children’s Burn Foundation learned of Assiya’s struggles, we rushed to get Assiya to Los Angeles for burn care surgeries by Dr. Peter Grossman. Assiya recently arrived in Los Angeles with her mother and older brother, and has had her first surgery at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills Hospital. With the use of artificial skin, a series of surgeries will help Assiya gain freedom to move again.

The Children’s Burn Foundation is proud to be facilitating this brave little girl’s journey toward mobility. Click here to donate and help children like Assiya.
