MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Tipton County woman has turned to social media to raise awareness about domestic violence.

Angela Brower is doing it in a shocking way.

She’s posting pictures of her injuries on Facebook.

Brower underwent surgery in Memphis Thursday to repair a crushed eye socket and broken nose, and even posted a photo of herself online before being wheeled into the operating room.

“She is lucky to be alive,” said Jason Brower.

Jason said two days after his ex-wife was attacked by her boyfriend, she decided to post pictures of herself on Facebook to let other women know what happened to her, and that it wasn’t OK.

She’s also been posting messages to abused women.

She’s hoping it will get others to talk about domestic violence and convince women to get out of abusive relationships.

“She finally came to the realization that it’s time for women to start standing up and not being scared,” said Jason.

Brower has also set up this gofundme page to help cover medical expenses not covered by insurance.

Her former boyfriend, Walter Frank Bradley, is locked up in the Tipton County Jail on a charge of aggravated assault.
