Debbie Baigrie, now aged 53,lived a night mare when she was 28 years old. Then, she was shot in the mouth by a teenager of 13 years who wanted to rob her. The woman had to go through dozens of painful facial reconstruction surgeries just to be able to eat again.
After 25 years since the terrible incident,Debbie forgave Ian Manuel, the aggressor sentenced to 65 years in prison. The two began to talk when the man attempted suicide while he was serving his second year in jail.
Now, the two regularly exchange letters, and Debbie is campaigning for his early release.
