Amy Purdy lost both her legs and became a 3x Paralympic medalist

REBROADCAST - Previously aired on 5/13/2020

Amy Purdy chose to be here. After losing both her legs below the knee at 19 to a form of bacterial meningitis, doctors gave her a 2% chance of survival. A year later she finished third in a snowboarding competition on Mammoth mountain. Amy went on to become one of the top Paralympic snowboarders in the world, competing on Dancing with the Stars, touring with Oprah Winfrey, starting a foundation, and writing a New York Times best-selling book. But after another life-threatening setback, Amy once again found herself knocking down doors to get the help she needed and in doing so, has inspired people everywhere to push through obstacles and make dreams happen.
