"You realize what kind of life you lived, and that flashes before you, and then you realize what kind of life that you want to live after."
Adrianne Haslet-Davis has survived the unimaginable bombings at the 2013 Boston Marathon, where she lost her left leg below the knee.
She is quickly rising to meet her daily challenges head on with a unique perspective. Being a ballroom dancer and former Fortune 500 corporate manager, at the peak of her career, she has had to re-learn her craft and an entirely new meaning to the word patience.
In the wake of the marathon, she has become an inspiration through her positive attitude and infectious smile.
"I refuse to be called a victim. I am not defined by what happened in my life. I am a survivor, defined by how I live my life."
