    I'm inspired by this story. So much so that we are helping Anna fund her dreams on RallyMe.

    I remember reading about this tragic accident last year, and feeling so sorry for Anna. That sympathy has turned to admiration for a young girl with such a mature attitude and acceptance of her situation. I also appreciated the reminder to "listen" to feelings we may get.

    WOW--what a remarkable young lady. I applaud your hard work and your marvelous attitude. Many people will benefit from your story and the decisions you have made about your life after the accident.

    My grandfather jumped a train and lost his leg when he was about your age. He,like you, saw life in a different light after the accident, and he went on to become a chef at a private club in Pittsburgh. He had his car modified and life went on with him behind the wheel. He, literally, was in the driver's seat and the "what" and "where" of his life were in his hands.

    Best wishes to you now and in your future!
