Amy Purdy is helping kids live their dreams

“As a kid, I wanted to explore every inch of the world — on a snowboard, when possible. But then I contracted bacterial meningitis. My kidneys shut down. My spleen burst. Both of my legs were amputated below the knees. Everyone told me I would never snowboard again. But, I didn’t give up on my dreams. I medaled in the Paralympics. I’m a motivational speaker, published author, Dancing with the Stars runner up and training to compete in the next Paralympic Games. Help kids live their dreams – just like me.”
