Samantha Diaz  “Follow your Joy” Creative being🔸Performance Artist Creator of @dancesoulco @goddessrhythms 🌱🐍🌎neness ∞💫☯️🕉💟

On December 14, 2018 Eye experienced the most traumatic accident of my life. During a performance, while backstage attempting to relight a live fire prop, the container of flammable liquid ignited. In my attempt to control the flames I was engulfed and suffered severe burns. They rushed to nearest hospital which, thankfully, was NYPB- one of the best for burn trauma. Got 1st, 2nd & 3rd degree burns across 40% of my body. I was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit and doctor’s estimate to remain there for 2 months of recovery that included 4 surgeries and skin grafts.

Those who knows me well know that I have been a professional dancer for nearly 15 years. Fire has been a part of my dancing and performances for about 9 years. So, it naturally came as a shock to many of you to hear this happened. Between the recovery and physical therapies, the doctors say it should be about 1 to 2yrs before I could resume my dancing career. The road to recovery will require lots of time and effort from my entire family and even some of my closest friends. I’m currently back home continuing the healing process gathering as much patience, love and strength.
My family which Eye adore been my strength and created this GoFundMe.com/LightforSammy [link>bio] with the hopes to help financially during these difficult times.
I’m so GRATEFUL to be alive, to this present moment in existence, to the process of healing, to the remembering of what we really made of and to see how powerful the human body is. This experience is currently teaching me so much and has been brought me even closer with the people Eye love ❤️
It’s been a re-birth, a transformation, a new way of life there for Eye will RISE stronger than ever!

I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you. -Oprah
