Amy's experience has made mine seem so small in comparison but one thing is for certain: she is the ultimate survivor. I personally don't know too many people who have the fortitude, courage, resilience, and strength of character to go endure 8 surgeries over a long period of time and still be able to want to better herself.
As a twice ruptured aneurysm and stroke survivor myself, her never give up attitude has inspired me to do the same: Never Give Up. Thank you for writing your story.
