In 2007, Carmen Tarleton, a registered nurse and mother of two, barely survived a brutal attack when her estranged husband beat her with a baseball bat and doused her with lye. The assault scorched more than 80 percent of her body, left her with extensive injuries and nearly took her life.
The assault left Carmen legally blind, without functioning eyelids, and she lost her left ear and was put in a doctor’s-induced coma for more than three and a half months. The beating and lye burns severely disfigured her body, making it difficult for her to eat and drink because of the extreme damage to her face and lips.
Four years after the horrific attack, Carmen joined The Doctors to share her story of courage, survival and grace. Donations to help with Carmen's many medical expenses can be made by clicking the DONATE NOW button below. For more on Carmen's story visit thedoctorstv.com.
