Almost Died From Hands Of A Nother

My name is Joi Partain Im writing about a Tragic event in  June of 2009 that happen to me. I was brutally beaten by my ex boy friend Jonathan Pearson with 2 golf clubs.First with a 9 iron to the face least 10 times, possibly as many as 15 (blunt force), until the club snapped in half. He then continued his assault with a putter.Breaking both my arms and hands.Iv had over 40 hours worth of plastic and reconstructive surgeries and a loss of my eye along with damage to my remaining eye.Jonathan Pearson was charged with first degree permeditated attempted murder with a deadly weapon in 2009. Im only 25 years old and a single mother.I have work very hard to become a victims advocate.I now work for a domestic violence shelter helping others like myself.I want to bring awareness about domestic violence. I am willing to share with my story with the entire world and hope that it helps others because  violence on women and children is getting out of control. this statistics on domestic violence  is disturbing and just getting worse. 
Every 9 seconds in the US a woman is assaulted or beaten.
Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined.Studies suggest that up to 10 million children witness some form of domestic violence annually. 
Everyday in the US, more than three women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends.anyways..... I think this would make an awesome article for your magazine... and a great way to bring awareness
I'm covered in ink including a huge chest peace stating (only time can heal) for survivor of domestic  violence .(love in old school on my knuckles followed by a purple ribbon stating survivor with the start of the sleep. my sleeve has stuff like a rainbow a lotus flower,clouds,ect ..I'm looking for ways to bring awareness and if your interested in a article I can send more pics of me ....including tattoo modeling pics before my attack 

Sincerely and very serious
