Road accident.
I wasn't right. Here is her story from her FB page.

It all happened when I was 6 months old. I was born just as all other children are: with two arms and two legs, but at 6 months of age, there was a fire in my house. At the time, my parents had gone out leaving me in the care of my two little siblings: my 4 yr old sister and 2 yr old brother. My brother accidentally set the house on fire while playing with a match. Thank God they were able to get out of the house safely, but unfortunately I wasn't.
The fire burned half of the left side of my head, my left arm, and practically all of my left leg, as well as half of my right foot. I was taken to hospital where I was hospitalized for about 6 months in the Intensive Care Unit. I was discharged from hospital when I was a little over a year old. The doctors told my mother that it was a miracle that I had survived.
Despite the hardships, I studied and graduated from college, I work, go to the gym, swim, ride a horse, ride a bike, and do everything I feel like doing. However, I walk around with the help of crutches. Since I'm always moving around, I often have pain in my arms and my right foot.
That's why getting a prosthesis is not just a dream, but a need and would help me have more quality of life and enable me to do much more.
I've already moved a lot to different cities and states. I'm always challenging myself. When people ask me if I'm afraid of living on my own, not having family nearby, my answer is simple: new things and new challenges are scary, but the thought of not living, taking risks and learning scares me much more.
A prosthesis for my left leg and a silicone prosthesis for my left foot currently costs: R$130,000.00 (a hundred thirty thousand brazilian reals). I can't afford to buy them, which is why I'm asking for your help to be part of this 'chain of goodness' either by making a donation or referring me to people who may be able to contribute.

This story is real and an opportunity for you to help too.

For those of you who know me personally, please help me spread the word. For those of you who don't, please add me to your social networks.

God bless all of you!!
Thank you very much!
