Танцовщице ампутировали обе ноги, однако она не сдалась и научилась жить иначе

Однажды с молодой танцовщицей Стефани Шиффер случился несчастный случай. Во время отпуска на Багамах семья девушки взяла катер напрокат, но в один момент у него взорвался двигатель! Девушка получила множество переломов, и врачам пришлось ампутировать ей обе ноги.

Decided to run away to Maine for a couple days just to relax and sit by the ocean…one day we were walking around Portland when a stranger waved to me. I figured it was just the usual smile and wave you get from other fellow amputees, but then she came up to us and knew exactly who I was. This woman is someone I’ve never met, but she had been following my story, and cheering me on from a distance since day 1 💛 I’ve felt the love and support everyday in my home town community and from all the people in my life, but it always amazes me when I see it in new places too. Shows me how good people really are, and what a small 🌎 it is we live in #amputeelife #thankful #steffindsnewroads

Долгое время она не могла прийти в себя от шока. Новая жизнь казалась страшным сном, Стефани могла только плакать и долгое время справиться с болью ей помогал психолог.

I’m appreciating every day so much more after getting through the recovery of yet another surgery. The good days feel so much sweeter when they come after a few bad days. This surgery may have given me a couple of challenging weeks but I know that it will give me years of less pain, easier walking, and a more comfortable #prosthesis What’s kept my spirits up?? Staying active! I’ve been biking, swimming, and doing physical therapy. I love getting outside on the bike, feeling free when I’m in the pool, and feeling strong in physical therapy 💪🏻 Next up on my to do list: kayaking and #adaptive water skiing!! … how does everyone else stay active and keep their spirits up? #adaptivesports #adaptivelife #adaptivelyabledamputees #recovery

Но в один момент девушка поняла, что всё могло сложиться намного хуже: она могла не просто лишиться ног, а умереть.

It’s been a wild year, everyone. Of course, I wish June 30, 2018, had been a normal day for me, but it wasn’t. I've learned more than I could have ever imagined this past year. I’ve screamed, I’ve cried, I’ve given up – but I’ve always gotten back up. I've learned that everything gets better in time. Work hard. Be kind. Be good. Be humble. Love yourself for you. 💗💪 To get a glimpse into my journey, check out my most recent blog post.

Это помогло Стефани смириться с тем, что случилось.

You can plan surgery and feel prepared for it or it can be unexpected, but either way the recovery is always harder than we can imagine. I went into this last surgery with a good attitude, ready to get it done, recover, and be back better than ever. But the reality is that recovery is full of unexpected twists and turns, feelings of frustration and sadness. Not all days are good days. What I’ve found that helps me is having support from family and friends and an amazing community around me. Gotta keep your head held high and know that these hard days won’t last forever. I’m anxious to be healed and get back to being active but I do love all this quality time with my big guy Oliver 💗 thank you to everyone who has helped my family and I through this hard time it’s so appreciated #community #recovery #strength

Наконец-то девушка научилась использовать протезы и теперь может жить той же жизнью, что была у нее раньше, даже собирается вернуться к танцам.

Теперь Стефани понимает ценность жизни, и этот факт позволяет ей радоваться каждой пройденной секунде.

Невероятно сильная девушка!
