My name Is Giulio, I am 31 years old. When I was 4 I had a terrible accident: I was close to the fireplace, a bottle of gasoline exploded and I got burned over 60% of my body.
Since 1990 I was traveling between Italy and USA ( Southfield, Michigan ) to perform reconstructive surgeries, for a Total of 48 of it.
As you can imagine, my life during my childhood was pretty hard, but I always tried to be strong, so I always able to have a good social life.
After high school I have joined the Italian Army where I served for about 3 years. I worked on my body trying to look good and athletic even though the scars was making me look "different".
During the service I met my wife Veronica, an Amazing Woman.
After that i have joined the Fire Department Academy, I was a paramedic for about 2 years and then I asked to me moved in the Fire Search and Rescue Squad till 2010.
After my first child, Samantha was born, I've been offer to work as a Director and Motivational Speaker in Malaysia for the company "Telelife".
We thought that could have been good to try a new experience. I accepted. And now its already 5 Years we leave here. In the mean time we had another son Christian.
After many years, I started to feel that I would like to know the feeling of going out, or meeting someone new without people wondering what happened to me.
Every time I go with my kids to a party I see other people staring at me, wondering what happened. Now my daughter is big enough to understand and I would like to avoid her friends asking what happened to her daddy. So I think its time for a change.
Now medicine and surgery made an amazing evolution.
Talking to my lifelong Surgeon Dr. Jan Jackson, there is many new method to heal burn victims.
I hope to raise enough funds to move the U.S. and perform a Face Transplant surgery, so, maybe I will have a second chance for a normal life.
The total amount to raise, calculating flights, house rent, Hospital and Doctors Fees, extras is around 150.000$.
Thanks to all of you in advance for your support.
Giulio, Veronica, Samantha & Christian
