Oprah calls her a hero. At age 19, Amy Purdy was given a 2% chance to live after being diagnosed with meningitis. Due to a lack of circulation, she lost her legs below the knees. After this life-altering experience, Amy has gone on to become a Paralympian snowboard champion, ABC's Dancing With The Stars runner-up, author, speaker, and co-founder of non-profit Adaptive Action Sports. Amy knows all about adversity and she's an icon for resilience. In this episode from the Why Not Now? archives, we discuss tangible tips and tools Amy uses when faced with challenging times.
