Kaitlin Parra

"The World Traveler"

Kaitlyn was just a senior in high school when she got off the bus, like she always had, stepped into the street and POW! Just like that, she was hit by a car. Unconscious, a coma and a stroke... she shouldn't have lived... but she did and you will never believe the gratitude this young lady has, for what happened to her. She's living her best life now and has a message to the world about doing the same!

Amy Martinez

"The Mom"

Amy Martinez - Amy lost all 4 of her limbs when she had a kidney stone turn into sepsis. Amy had a 1 and 3 year old at the time and the rest of her life ahead of her. This could have taken her into a very dark place, wanting to give up, but she knew her children needed her and felt she could get through and share her story with others.

Joshua Williams

"The Pastor"

Joshua Williams - Joshua was born with cerebral palsy. They realized when he was around 2 years old. He would have 5 surgeries to help make him better, instead, they made him worse. To look at Joshua, you would think it would be impossible for him to get around, but, instead, he's hard to get to stay still! Joshua lives a life encouraging others!

Alex Ruiz

"The Athlete"

Alex Ruiz - A high school senior and athlete, Alex was a Junior playing an away football game as his high school's quarterback, when his whole life changed... he was hit from the side, dislocating his right knee and tearing the popliteal artery. This would result in amputation of his lower leg. For a teen, this should seem like the end of the world, and at times, I'm sure it did... but Alex wouldn't stay in that place, his faith and his perspective has allowed him to reinvent himself and help him share his story and message with others.

Kassidy Brewer

"The Student"

Kassidy Brewer - Kassidy had an aneurysm burst in her brain when she was just 13. A black belt in Tae Kwon Do and an overall athlete, her world was forever changed... but today, 10 years later, she's the same person she's always been... double black belt and all!
