An Indiana woman is overcoming the odds after an ATV crash left her paralyzed.
Last week, she walked down the aisle at her wedding.
Brittney Bedwell was told she would never walk again after her accident.
“A doctor told me that I was never going to walk again, and I didn’t want to believe that, and I did for a while and I had depression and anxiety but once I got over that, I just woke up one day and I just like started feeling some stuff in my legs and I knew that it wasn’t over,” said Bedwell.
In the months following, she gained strength in physical therapy and her now-husband, Glen, proposed at the hospital. She said so much of her progress has been even more mental than physical.
And walking down the aisle is something she had always dreamed about.
“It was really important to me because I got to watch my sisters walk down the aisle with him, and I knew I wanted to do that, so I had to push myself even harder,” she said.
Her sister, Ashley Sieb, posted video and photos of her sister walking down the aisle on the big day.
“She leaves me speechless. So I’ll just say – Brittney Bedwell inspires me to never give up,” she wrote. “To believe in miracles. To stay strong. To defy the odds. To love deeply and freely. Happy wedding day, baby sister. You are STUNNING and STRONG!”
But this inspiring story doesn’t end here.
Bedwell was also told because of her injury she wouldn’t be able to have kids again. She’s now four months pregnant.
