The Kevin Fischer "Whippersnapper Hall of Fame"- Inductee #13

Whippersnapper Hall of Fame

She is Bree McMahon, the epitome of dogged determination and inspiration. I first wrote about her earlier this year during one of my Week-ends blogs. McMahon’s is one of the most heartwarming stories you’ll ever hear.

Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel writes:

“She was at a car wash to help raise money for her club soccer team. An accident happened — a terrible, freakish accident. As Bree was getting ready to wash a car driven by one of her teammates, the driver's foot slipped off the brake and hit the gas. The car surged forward and pinned Bree against a brick wall.

Her lower extremities were smashed. Her left leg had to be amputated. Her right leg was saved — barely — but had to be rebuilt.

Since then, her story of hoping and coping has captured the nation.

‘Watch me come back from this!’ she said. ‘And I will come back from this!’

That's why it was so important for her to walk across the field Wednesday at Freedom High School — because she wanted to show her friends, her family, her team and, yes, herself that she is not going to give up.”
