Date:2/26/2010

Victim of Domestic Abuse Removes the Physical and Emotional Scars of Her Brutal Attack with the Help of a Local Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Joseph Racanelli.

(Vocus) February 24, 2010 -- Like many cases of domestic violence, the nightmare for Christina was relived daily. Fear for the safety of her three sons, and humiliation from friends and neighbors, forced her to endure the continued suffering in silence. One morning she awoke and made the most important decision in her life, she decided that she was no longer going to be a victim of domestic violence.

On the evening of October 13, 2008, as she slept in bed with her infant son, she awoke to Joe stabbing her in the abdomen with a kitchen knife. She tried desperately to scream, but Joe was on top of her covering her mouth. Fearing for her infant’s safety, she positioned her body in front of the child, as her husband thrashed wildly with the knife. Christina’s 12 year old son, who was asleep in the next room, was awoken by all the commotions. He entered her room, and turned the lights on, to find his father violently attacking his mother. Joe became startled when his son entered the room, he then dropped the knife and fled the scene.

Christina’s son called 911, and she was taken by ambulance to University Hospital in Newark, NJ. Christina received emergency exploratory surgery for multiple stab wounds to her abdomen. When Christina awoke the next day in the intensive care unit, she realized the severity of her injuries. Christina remained in the hospital for almost two weeks, before she was discharged to a woman's shelter. Christina lived in the woman's shelter for 11 months. Unable to walk for almost two months, Christina received physical therapy and wound care by
