On April 15th, 2013, Rebekah Gregory was left fighting for her life following the Boston Marathon terrorist attack.

She underwent 35 operations and a leg amputation.

 

"Two years ago I was lying on the pavement, fighting for my life. One year ago, I was being pushed in a wheelchair across the finish line when we did the 1K tribute." Rebekah, on her Facebook. 

 

In 2015, Rebekah ran the last 3.5 miles of the Boston Marathon with the help of her prosthetic leg, which she affectionately calls, 'Felicia'.

 

 

Her strength is proof the bombers did not achieve their goals.
