Before You Say "I Can't"


Dancing With The Stars Amy Purdy should be an inspiration to anyone who dares to try when the going gets rough.  While life gives us all challenges, Amy has met with more than many, and she has met them head on.

At the age of nineteen Amy developed serious health issues and was given a 2% chance of survival.  She lost both her legs at that time.  But, that hasn't stopped her.

Amy is currently a contender on Dancing With The Stars.  She uses prosthetic legs to gracefully glide across the floor, garnering high scores and praise from the judges.
