My guest Gina Springhower, her story is remarkable. Gina was involved in a car accident March 22, 2008 and with a one decision while out with friends, her life changed in a flash.
Now an independent paraplegic she strives to live life to the fullest. Gina has lived both able bodied and now as a disabled young woman. She has spent twenty - one years of her life walking, tumbling, dancing al of that quickly gone in a flash. Gina still has the heart and soul of a competitor which continues to serve her, along with her deep love for tumbling.
Gina defied the odds not limited by her diagnosis. In September 2014 she married John, the love of her life. She accomplished her goal of walking down the aisle preserving with the heart of a athlete,champion making her dream a reality.
Now Gina is living fully with passion, purpose and is beginning a new journey. She has done numerous television interviews, as well being the featured guest on a well know day time talk show.
