Girls with Burn Injuries Find Healing at “Angel Faces” Retreat

Where do you go when the world looks at you as different?

For 20 girls with burn and trauma injuries, it’s a retreat in Wolfeboro called “Angel Faces,” where they will start to heal from life-changing scars.

The young ladies were brought together by Lesia Cartelli, who has walked in their shoes.

“I was in a natural gas explosion at my grandparents’ home when I was 9 years old,” said Cartelli, founder of Angel Faces. “The house exploded and I was trapped in the basement.”

“Angel Faces came faces came about because I didn’t want to waste my pain,” Cartelli said.
