Paige Mixson's Story

My survivor story constantly reminds me of how blessed I am to be alive and well today. I spent over four years with my abuser and endured lots of painful moments that ultimately led to my assault. I was stabbed and strangled on the night of my assault and I was courageous enough to survive for my son and myself.

The person that assaulted me that night was not only my partner but my son's father. My son who was only two at that time and also witnessed the brutal assault of his mom before his own eyes. After jumping out of a vehicle at the nearest street light I was able to escape and get the help I desperately needed to survive from my injuries. I was rushed to Charlotte Main Trauma Center where I spent a week getting treated for my lacerations and internal injuries.
