Surviving Sepsis by Kia Brazil coming soon!!! May 25th 2021
Kia Brazil a devoted amazing mom of 2, at the age of 27 years old was attacked by an common unspoken about illness called Severe Sepsis.
What is Severe Sepsis?
Severe sepsis occurs when one or more of your body's organs is damaged from this inflammatory response. Any organ can be affected, your heart, brain, kidneys, lungs, and/or liver. The symptoms you can experience are based on which organ or organs that are affected. It is Known as a blood poising.
Severe Sepsis caused complete organ failure 3x in Kia. After providing many life saving attempts doctors left it up to Kia to fight. This was a battle not many beat.
After being in a medically induced comma for 14 days Kia woke up to her legs and fingers lifeless having to be amputated...
28 surgeries later Kia is an quadruple amputee. Though everyone around her feared her brain suffered along with her visible features. Kia woke up with the abilities to still speak, eat, think, see and, the best gift being able to see her two children again.
Of course the tragic lost of her limbs did matter but she had her life... Who was she to complain?
Kia decided she wanted to be seen as thankful and beautiful. Kia lives to teach and inspire all no matter shape color or size. You're beautiful.
Kia stresses to be seen as her normal self but of course some will ALWAYS see her visible differences before her face, however she has no problem reminding anyone she's still "BEAUTIFUL" and an amputee immediately after. With that being one of many priorities Kia started to seek a new career as an Amputee model.. What greater way to share her life changing story, promote beauty and strength ….
Late April 2019, Kia checked out the hospital and decided to do a photo shoot (images in gallery). It shocked many people over the world including herself...She was out to the world. But not completely Kia still had many more surgeries to go that would change her visible features. But with no doubt in her mind she continued to shoot, balance a new way of living and being a mom. Kia fought through many days of illness, many hospital visits, but her strength remained remarkable.
Late May Kia was signed to be represented by her first agency, Zebedee Modeling located in UK. Zebedee is a specialist talent agency representation of people who have until now been excluded in the media, including people with disabilities or alternative appearances.
Things were moving into play for Kia. However it wasn't until she started receiving messages and letters stating how much courage and strength she provided to others was it that Kia started to feel accomplished.
It doesn't stop there!!
She will continue to encourage...motivate... and provide strength where she can to those who may need by sharing her story and journey through her new life.
Kia will soon be releasing a book called " Surviving Sepsis...A Survivor's Tale" this year explaining her full journey with Sepsis from her point of view.
Become familiar with her story now the book will for sure sweep you off your feet.
