About the Author
Kilee Brookbank is a college student, shoe fanatic, animal lover - and burn survivor. Severely injured when a gas leak caused her house to explode in November 2014, Kilee was hospitalized for thirty-eight days before returning home to a life of new challenges and a new "normal." Kilee, who now attends Xavier University, is creating her future with strength and determination that inspire everyone she meets. She and her family formed the Kilee Gives Back Foundation in 2015 to support other families through times of crisis, and Kilee is devoted to paying forward the generosity and kindness she received from her community and from around the world. Lori Highlander is, first and foremost, proud mom to daughter Kilee and son Cameron. Lori has spent twenty years as an executive in the alcohol and drug addiction field and has witnessed first-hand the impact of information and inspiration on the healing process. In 2014, Lori's daughter, Kilee Brookbank, was severely burned in a house explosion. Kilee's resilience and Cameron's strength compelled Lori to launch KiCam Projects, creating an avenue to bring light to powerful stories of survival with the goal of supporting charitable endeavors and organizations. Additionally, Lori and her family formed the Kilee Gives Back Foundation, a nonprofit inspired by the family's personal experience. Lori lives in Georgetown, Ohio, with Kilee and Cameron; her husband, Wade; and her stepsons, Collin and Houstin.
"This personal story is a great read for young people recovering from trauma, who will be able to relate to Kilee's pain and will be inspired and encouraged by her determination and optimism. It's also a beautiful reading experience for mothers and daughters learning to love and support each other as their relationships flourish into adulthood. Beautiful Scars is a story of hope and inspiration, especially for young women and their mothers."--Foreword Reviews, 5 stars (09/22/2017) Kilee's resilience compelled the family to create an avenue to bring to light powerful stories of survival with the goal of supporting charitable endeavors and organizations...huge inspiration here.--Alan Canton, NewMedia Create (06/20/2017)
