The Christy Sims Foundation was founded in response to a tragic incident of domestic violence upon its founder, Christy Tucker Sims.
On April 28, 2013, Christy was assaulted by her boyfriend with industrial grade sulfuric acid, which burned her over 20% of her body and sent her into a coma for two months. Christy is the first reported case of an acid attack in the state of Georgia. To date, she has undergone 13 surgeries to reconstruct her disﬁgured face and body, and her personal struggle has propelled her to advocate and support other survivors of domestic violence. Due to her diligence, her abuser was finally brought to justice on July 17, 2015 after a two-year fight.
Christy’s story has touched the lives of millions around the world and possibly prevented other cases of domestic violence. Watch and listen to her recent recognition by the Atlanta Braves...
