Justina Page’s life was changed forever in the early morning hours of March 7, 1999. That is when fire swept through her Houston home, killing her 22-month old twin son, Amos, severely injuring the other twin Benjamin, and leaving her with third degree burns over 55 percent of her body. With the support of her surviving family, her husband, James, and their 5 boys, church family, and with the power of faith and love, Justina has made a miraculous recovery.
From the ashes of this tragedy has risen a new hope. Justina has since dedicated herself to helping families affected by burn trauma. She is the founder and Executive Director of The Amos House of Faith, a nonprofit organization, established to provide post burn support to children and families affected by burn trauma. She is also the author of the upcoming book The Circle of Fire.
Being a burn survivor herself as well as the mother of burn survivors, she has experienced all the stages of trauma a burn patient faces and is uniquely qualified to deal with these problems. She has been trained as a SOAR (Survivors Offering Assistance and Recovery) trainer, coordinator, and peer supporter. This coupled with her work at the John S. Dunn Sr. Burn Center at Memorial Hermann Hospital, Shriner’s Hospital in Galveston, and the Phoenix Society, gives her a truly unique understanding of how to teach, help, and inspire others.
Justina Page’s book, The Circle of Fire, is the story of her family’s journey through the terrain of tragedy to wholeness and happiness. She is also a cast member of Trial By Fire: Lives Reforged, a Megan Harris documentary about burn survivors. Tragedy is not confined to the burn community and Justina has found that her message of moving from despair to hope resonates deeply with a wide audience.
