Do you remember what we were doing two years ago – early Spring, 2012? Our guest, Stephanie Decker, was in the middle of a storm.
As a category five tornado ripped through the tiny town of Henryville, Indiana, lifting her home off its foundation and smashing it to the ground, she used her body as a shield to protect her two young children from flying debris, falling beams, and a disintegrating house. Even after her legs were crushed from a structural collapse, her motherly instincts did not fail her – directing her kids on what to do next.
She did what any mom would do for her family. Because of her heroic efforts, her children walked away from the rubble unscathed. As she explains on the show, “Not even a scratch.”
Her next step was just as heroic. She went all the way to the oval office to have the opportunity to receive the best prosthetic legs.
Stephanie has inspired a nation. She has appeared on the Today Show, The Ellen Degeneres Show, ABC World News Tonight (as “person of the week”), and featured in publications such as USA Today, and People Magazine. She also started the Stephanie Decker Foundation, which helps children with prosthetics, enjoy sports and helps people gain access to leading-edge prosthetics.
