Boyfriend refuses to leave his girlfriend after terrible fire destroys her face – shows the true meaning of love

The story of Turia Pitt is heartbreaking and hugely inspirational at the same time. This mining engineer has gone through a lot during the past 10 years. In 2011, while competing in an ultra-marathon, she was suddenly caught in a grassfire.

No one knows how she managed to survive, as she suffered severe burns on 65 percent of her body. Turia lost seven fingers, undergone over 200 medical procedures, and spent two grueling years in recovery.

However, she wasn’t alone. The one person who stood by her side throughout the entire ordeal was her boyfriend Michael. He never considered leaving her and was her biggest support. What’s most, in 2015, he proposed to her and the two got married.

“When Turia was in intensive care four years ago I bought a diamond ring,” Michael told the Daily Mail. He never stops reminding her how beautiful she is.

It took Turia two years to take her mask off. She needed to wear it constantly so that her face healed faster.

She is happy she found a man who loves her no matter what and who didn’t leave her after the horrific accident.

“Going to sleep next to my partner I never thought anything of before. Now I think how lucky am I get to sleep next to this beautiful man. He’s a good guy and I’m very lucky to have him,” Turia shared with the Daily Mail. “Every day I wake up beside Michael is a great day.”

Turia’s life story went viral and many people from Australia and other parts of the world followed her journey after the accident.

Then, in early 2017, she and Michael shared some extraordinary news with the public. They were expecting their first child together. Later that year, baby boy Hakavai was welcomed into the world. In 2020, the Australian couple welcomed another bundle of joy into their lives, son Rahiti Hoskin.

Today, they are a perfect family of four and their story reminds us that there is always hope when true love is present.
