HOPE and Surviving

- bismillah -

Cross-country skier Janine Shepherd hoped for an Olympic medal -- until she was hit by a truck during a training bike ride. She shares a powerful story about the human potential for recovery. Her message: you are not your body, and giving up old dreams can allow new ones to soar.

Athlete Janine Shepherd was rendered a partial paraplegic when she was hit by a truck during an Olympic training bike ride. Doctors didn't expect her to recover. But she not only learned to walk again -- she learned to fly.

"My whole right side was ripped up and was filled with gravel...
I had head injuries,
i had internal injuries,
i had massive blood loss, i loss 5 liters of blood,
by the time i reach the hospital, my blood pressure,
was forty over nothing... (40/-)"

How can she survived after all the losses and trauma? 
It is HOPE that drives her.


Keep hoping and believing!
