James and Justina Page awoke to an explosion in their rental home. Chaos ensued as the couple desperately tried to find their six sons in a choking smoke that obscured all visibility. James ran to one side of the house to lead the four older boys to safety while Justina rushed to the nursery to rescue their 21 month-old twins from their cribs. A burning bookcase fell on top of the frenzied mother, leaving her trapped. By the time she was freed, one twin was saved but it was too late for baby Amos who perished in the fire.
Justina was determined that her son Amos would not die in vain. She channeled her pain into helping other burn survivors, becoming an advocate for burn patients and their families.
