On the September 21st, 1988 a stroke of fate befell the monozygotic triples Traf, Jordan and Chandra that will leave you stunned. The three small Texans were still babies and could never have known what was going to happen to them on this day.
The ambulance took the babies immediately to emergency. For months the triplets had to remain in ICU because they'd received third degree burns to 30-45 percent of their bodies. Doctors feared for the lives of the three sweet girls.
The fire had inflicted a terrible pain on them but they also had to endure the torment of losing their mother too. At least, though, they still had each other. This was absolutely crucial because another fate would hit home later in their lives...
As the three grew older, it became apparent to them that their bodies would always look different to the other kids at school. For this reason, they always wore long-sleeved tops and lots of make-up to school, in order to escape the ridicule and insults.
The sisters' burns were so bad that Dr. Waibel conducted the procedures for free. For Jordan, this was a particularly amazing gift as she was about to get married. When she tried on her dress post treatments, she was overwhelmed. "This is the kind of dress that I could never have worn, if I had grown up and still had my scars", she said.
