You may remember swimmer Amy Van Dyken-Rouen from the 1996 and 2000 Summer Olympics, where she won six gold medals collectively. However, the biggest challenge of Van Dyken-Rouenís life hasnít been in a swimming pool. Just 10 months ago, her spinal cord was severed in an all-terrain vehicle accident, leaving her paralyzed from the waist down. Her amazingly positive attitude and a team of dedicated doctors have put her on the road to recovery, with major progress toward her dream of walking again.
