A detroit woman is now fighting for her life against the same flesh eating bacteria that Aimee Copeland had to battle.
Her name is Crystal Spencer, and she's just 33 years old.
She's been hospitalized since June 30, and has already had a part of her midsection removed.
Her husband likened it to the size of a small watermelon.
Here's what he said:
"They only give her a 20 to 30 percent chance to pull out of this, not even to make this. The surgeon keeps going in and cleaning it and cleaning it. But they're saying it could go either way."
One of the scariest parts of this story is that her husband things she contracted the bacteria at a different Detroit hospital, where she had an abscess removed from her leg.
Her husband continued:
"They're saying it's a long road but I'm trying to think for the better that hopefully she does make it. She's alert but she's not to the point where she can talk or really do much. It's just hard at night to do this. I'm keeping my hopes up I'm praying and have family do what they can."
We hate the idea of stuff like this creeping around hospitals!
It CAN be done, Crystal! It can be beaten!
We believe in you!
