First US Face Transplant Patient Marries Burn Victim

Dallas Wiens and Jamie Nash celebrated their wedding on March 30 is a testament to human perseverance and the power of love.

Before Dallas Wiens and Jamie Nash met each other, they were struggling to recover from unbelievably traumatic experiences.
The couple met in a support group for burn victims, showed that their love for each other was strong enough to withstand any physical pains, getting married in a beautiful ceremony at the same church where Dallas was injured.

Dallas was severely injured in 2008 working construction at a church when he accidentally touched a high-voltage power line. He was blinded and suffered serious facial injuries, and subsequently became the first American to receive a full face transplant.

In 2010, Jamie suffered near-fatal burns on %70 of her body when her car burst into flames after an accident.

While being treated at the same hospital though, Dallas and Jamie found courage and support from each other, and their lives have been enriched ever since.
This is the second marriage for both Dallas and Jamie. Dallas has a 5 year old daughter and Jamie has a 10 older daughter and a 6 year old son.

They both travel as motivational speakers now, with Jamie focusing on speaking about the dangers of texting and driving.
