But at age fifteen, one afternoon with friends left her dreams shattered. Stef was angry – at God, at the boating accident that left her an amputee, at everything. Despite that, she is a Olympic sprinter for the United Kingdom and brought home silver from the 2012 Paralympics Summer Games. How?
Hers is a story of faith, hope and bravery to overcome a struggle few of us will ever have to face. Check it out in the video below!
