Courtney has come a long way, figuratively and literally, since her life changed dramatically on Dec. 13, 2012. Here are her thoughts on the first anniversary of the accident:
“A year ago my life changed forever. I can't believe it's gone by so fast! I want to take the time to say ‘thank you’ to all of my friends, my family and mostly God! There's no way I would have made it through this without y'all!
“I never thought something so horrible would ever happen to me, but it's amazing what you can do and what you can make it through if you just trust in God! I can't wait to see what the future holds!! I love Lilly (my leg) and I wouldn’t change what happened to me for anything. It's made me realize there is so much in life to be thankful for, and so many people are worse off than me. I wouldn't be this far if it wasn’t for God. It's through Him that I continue to move forward. I'm becoming the person he wants me to be!”
