Amputee with a New Lease On Life

Smiling Through Life

December 2012 changed my life. I was involved in a severe single car accident. The front passenger died and the driver suffered severe brain injury. I was seated behind the driver and had both of my legs crushed. You could say I was the lucky one from that perspective.

Amputation was required when I was flown to Westmead Hospital. Complications arose when they couldn't stop the uncontrolled bleeding. Using up all of  the blood supply, they had to urgently seek supply from another hospital. 

I almost died that day...almost, but I am here writing this story to show that whatever happens in life, you pick yourself up and look forward. Don't hold yourself back by thinking what could have, should have been. Stand tall and smile because life is so precious, and we shouldn't use our energy on the negative aspects. SMILE :)
