Such an unbelievable inspiration!
After making a miraculous recovery following a near-fatal gunshot wound to the head more than three months ago, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has been officially cleared by her doctors to travel to Cape Canaveral, FL to attend her husband Mark Kelly's space shuttle launch this Friday!
According to Kelly, who is serving as the commander of the shuttle, The Endeavor:
"I've met with her doctors, her neurosurgeon and her doctors, and…they've given us permission to take her down to the launch."
Wonderful! This must be such a huge step forward for her!
We couldn't be more thrilled!
Good vibes, gurl! And have a wonderful and SAFE trip!
We're rooting for you!
