It takes a strong person to allow their scars to tell their life story

As a survivor of impulsive adult bullying, Ebony Canion speaks out about how one unnecessary fight Left her for Dead. She sheds light and hope on surviving molestation, rape, domestic violence and recovering from a series negative life choices.

Washington, DC (BlackNews.com) – Ebony Canion, a Cleveland, Ohio native, is no stranger to adversity. In fact, countless traumatic experiences in her childhood and adulthood have molded her to be strong, resilient, and faithful, in short a survivor. On June 30, 2012, her strength was tested more than ever before. She was intentionally ran over by speeding car and then dragged for over two hundred feet, with her body folded underneath the vehicle. She sustained over thirty life-threatening injuries and was in a coma for over two months. The doctors told her family she would be a vegetable and would never walk again. Her injuries at the time included a collapsed lung, fractured shoulder and jaw, seven broken ribs, broken legs, broken pelvis, and the skin on her back was ripped off from road burn. That fateful night would change her life forever. Ebony Canion, 34, was “Left for Dead.”

Ebony’s new book, LEFT FOR DEAD, will show that despite her many obstacles, she will never be defeated, she will survive. Infused with the intensity of a woman fighting for her life, here is a story of hope, heartbreak and the love and courage that transforms a widow and rape victim – from a victim to a survivor, from a wounded woman to an indomitable one. In this gripping, no-holds barred memoir, readers are granted an intimate look at the recovery of Ebony Canion as she deals with a history of rape at 14 years old and domestic violence, past family discord, the psychological and emotional adjustments that need to occur during her attempt to reclaim a sense of normalcy and the will to conquer all challenges. As an inspiration to all who know her, Ebony’s will to overcome, more importantly to survive, is unparalleled.

In LEFT FOR DEAD, Ebony’s destiny changed as she adapted to a new mindset. She credits her shift and levels in progress to writing LEFT FOR DEAD (Life Changing Books, February 4, 2014; ISBN-13: 978-1934230596; Non-fiction $15.00). The book is full of raw emotion and shares a vulnerability that draws the reader into a complicated life story. Tressa Smallwood is quoted as saying, “After hearing the violent and inspirational story of Ebony Canion’s fight to live, I knew my company Life Changing Books was the perfect outlet to publish LEFT FOR DEAD, it’s a true survivor story. Her strength to learn to walk, talk, and eat again will leave you spellbound and inspired. Her scars tell a story that must be heard!”
