Aimee Copeland Spreads Hope to Amputees
It’s like watching a scene from a 70’s television show, Aimee Copeland get’s bionic hands.
It’s simply amazing that such technology is available and that such a positive spirit can thrive to hopefully show us all how to enjoy life. Aimee Copeland had to have a foot, a leg and both hands amputated after contracting a fast moving bacteria.
The flesh eating bacteria that Aimee contracted while zip-lining was Necrotzing Fasciitis:
According to the Necrotizing Fasciitis Foundation, NF is a bacterial infection that “gets into the body, quickly reproduces, and gives off toxins and enzymes that destroy the soft tissue and fascia, which quickly becomes gangrenous (dead).” In order to save someone that has NF, the “gangrenous tissue must be surgically removed.”
