The 28 year old, was a victim of its own beauty as a pathologically jealous woman doused her with alcohol and set fire to her house. A premeditated attack which occurred on February 16, 2012. A chilling story that shows as that both courage and madness have no limits!
“The pain was unbelievable.”
She tried throwing water over herself but she continued to burn. “Every drop felt like it was acid burning into my skin… Everything was hurting so much.”
After Natalia Dimitrovska and her accomplice had fled, Dana continued to burn and was rushed to hospital after a neighbour heard her screams.
Dana had suffered burns to 64 per cent of her body and was immediately placed in an induced coma.
But recently she suffered another blow - a routine pap smear by her doctor revealed abnormal cells in her cervix.
"I just couldn't believe that, dealing with so much at once, there were times where I thought how much can one person deal with?"
"It would've been easier to die but I've never taken the easy road to anything so. It is the hardest, rockiest, biggest mountain you can possibly think of," she said.
After numerous reconstructive surgeries, Dana was finally able to take off her literal mask and reveal her new face. Dana isn’t concerned about looking different. As she told Australia’s Channel Seven’s Sunday Night, “I hope they see the scars. This is part of me now.”
With the help of designer Betty Tran and models from Vivien's modeling agency in Sydney, Dana celebrated removing her pressure garments with a glamorous makeover and catwalk show.
Ms Vulin said she had been "known for her looks" before the attack.
Her transformation is absolutely incredible, but it’s her inner beauty and determination that we most respect.
