In August 2008, Stephanie Nielson and her husband, Christian, were flying across Arizona when the plane crashed, bursting into flames on impact. The pilot suffered fatal injuries and died 24 hours late. Christian, despite having broken his back and his ankle, managed to get Stephanie out of the aircraft and to drag her away from the burning wreckage. Stephanie suffered severe burns on more than 80% of her body. She awoke from a medically induced coma in November 2008 and has since returned to her Utah home.
Stephanie is one brave lady; her scars may never heal and, despite being in constant physical pain, she still manages to make lunches, bathe her children and celebrate life! She recently appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show so some of you may already be aware of her.
If you want to read more about Stephanie she keeps a blog *here*. She is an avid blogger, a great photographer and, more importantly, she is an inspiration to us all.
