Noel swerved her Toyota truck in order to avoid hitting a deer on the road. Her vehicle flipped several times, eventually landing on her left leg that was sticking out of the window.

She was trapped.

This Man Voluntarily Amputated His Foot! He's Not Crazy, And His Reason Might Have You Making The Same Decision In His Place!

Filed under: ZportzInspirationHealthSurgeryFunnyAmazing

man losing foot goes through bucket list first

Joseph Pleban, 23, absolutely loves sports.

You name it, he's probably played it. Extreme sports and regular ones, it doesn't matter, he loves to be active.

So you can imagine how awful it must've been when doctors told him he had a rare bone and joint disease (pigmented villonodular synovitis), and that he'd have non-cancerous tumors causing pain and arthritis in his ankle for the rest of his life.

He had two options: fuse the ankle and endure a lifetime of surgeries or amputate it.

Aimee Copeland Doing 200 Crunches In 7 Minutes!

Filed under: Etc.InspirationHealth

We don't know anyone, really, who could do 200 crunches in 7 minutes… let alone someone who had a quadruple amputation because of a flesh eating bacteria!

Holy shizz!!

According to Aimee Copeland's dad, she had been doing amazing things in rehab — things that even normal people can't do!

Apparently she completes 400 leg lifts in seven minutes, 200 crunches in seven minutes (with every set of 10 she's required to say a complete sentence), pushups, and planks.

Her goal is complete independence, highlighted by the fact that she was NOT happy when her dad said he wanted to get a van with a lift in it.

Here's what he said:

"She is learning to work around these inconveniences and she is determined that she will prevail. Who am I to tell her any different? Needless to say, the van ain't happening."

LOLz!

He continued:

"Aimee's focus remains on one thing and one thing only: not being 'handicapped.' If hard work is any indication, I think we can all surmise that she is well on her way toward achieving that goal."

We know she can do it.

She's the most dedicated and determined person we've ever seen — she's got this.

Simply incredible!

We're also thrilled to see that they took a picture of the moment!

Check out the video (above) to see how well she's doing, given the circumstances!

You can do this, Aimee! We have no doubt!

Flesh Eating Bacteria Victim Aimee Copeland Is Speaking!

Filed under: InspirationHealth

Yay!

We've been following her story closely for the past few weeks — from the beginning when we heard she had to go through the amputations. Now through her tough recovery, we're here at the point where she's actually able to speak again!

On Sunday, she said this:

"Hello. Whoa. Wow, my mind is blown."

She said this to her mom and sister, and unfortunately her dad was at church and unable to hear the very first words… but he did speak to her later.

He asked her how it felt to speak, and she said:

"It feels weird being able to talk."

Just last week Aimee was able to breathe, and then sit up, on her own. So to be able to talk just a few days later is such a HUGE step!

She has a long road ahead of her, but we get the feeling she'll be able to handle it!
