As a teenager, Amy Purdy was completely in love with snowboarding. But when she was just 19, she tragically came down with bacterial meningitis, an incredibly rapidly spreading disease that has an 85% fatality rate if not treated within 24 hours. The disease, which affects your circulatory system, stopped blood from flowing to Purdy's limbs and ultimately resulted in the amputation of both of her legs below the knee. "I always felt really lucky that I only lost my legs because it could've been so much worse," Purdy says. While in recovery in the hospital, she began to ask her doctors when she could snowboard again. Years later, Purdy is a member of the U.S. Olympic team as a para-snowboarder. But the path to Olympic glory was definitely not easy. Here, Purdy recalls her first snowboard ride after losing her legs. Prepare to feel amazed and inspired by her grit, determination, and utter resilience.
