Amy Harris never thought it could happen, but now her road to recovery is finally taking steps in the right direction.

She was thrown from a trailer when the tornado hit in March.

“I was conscious when I hit ground and I was like where's my mom where's my mom, and panicking because I guess I just didn't know what had happened,” said Harris.

Harris lost her left leg, and suffered many other injuries that left her in the trauma unit for 2 months.

“Because of her trauma, and everything after the accident, she was so sick; it was very hard for her to do everything to get this knee prepared for having prosthesis,” said Physical Therapist Chris Fuson.

“I’m just afraid something very sudden will happen again, but I know that God's with me and he'll take care of me,” said Harris.

She keeps faith, one step at a time, no matter how hard a path to travel.
