SAN ANTONIO -- Domestic violence survivor Brandy Resse told KABB Fox San Antonio she was almost beaten to death by her abuser.
"Both of my arms were broken, both hands were crushed, my skull was fractured, and my face was pretty mangled", added Resse.
Reese went on to say she was strangled. "Thankfully I saw justice for that, he's serving time in prison".
Through her pain and her countless surgeries Resse says music has remained constant in her life.
"It sets my soul on fire. It's absolutely what got me through it", Resse went on to say.
Resse says she started playing the piano when she was 4 years old.
She's a piano teacher by profession, and despite her horrific abuse she knew not being able to ever play the piano again wasn't an option.
"There's nothing you can't do as long as you have music".
Resse is a volunteer at the Battered Women and Children's shelter, and she's been wanting to do something more.
"These kids they need music, and I asked them (the shelter) if I can I start a music program here, and so it was a yes".
The shelter is hopeful to have a music program up and running within a couple of weeks. "There's all kinds of things we can do with them, and really bring some art and joy into their lives".
Resse plans to give piano lessons along with other volunteers to children at the shelter. "It's been kinda a long road, but I'm doing great, and now I want to do great for these kids here".
If your have an old musical instrument you are not using you can donate it to the Battered Women and Children's Shelter.
If you're a musician you can also volunteer your time.
