WWRWSM Speaks with Best-Selling Author Amy Purdy

Women Who Rock with Success

At 19, after experiencing flu-like symptoms, Amy, a massage therapist, was rushed to the hospital in a state of septic shock. En route, she experienced respiratory and multiple organ failure which caused her to lose circulation to her extremities. When she entered the hospital she was given less than a 2% chance of survival, put on life support, and placed into a coma. After multiple blood transfusions and the removal of her ruptured spleen, doctors diagnosed Amy with Meningococcal Meningitis, a highly deadly bacterial blood infection. Due to septic shock, doctors had to amputate her legs below the knee. She later received a donated kidney from her father a week before her 21st birthday. After going through this life-altering experience, Amy challenged herself to move on with her life and attain goals that even those who have both legs struggle to achieve. Just three months after her kidney transplant, Amy entered the USASA National Snowboarding Championship where she won medals in three events. Today, she is the most decorated Paralympic snowboarder in U.S. history and a three-time Paralympic Medalist. Amy's creativity, positive outlook, and never-give-up attitude have opened doors to many other opportunities including being featured in a Madonna music video and a lead actress role in an award-winning film. She and her husband were featured on the TV show The Amazing Race and most recently Amy came in 2nd Place on the hit ABC show Dancing with the Stars with her partner Derek Hough.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/diane-winbush/support
