Beatrice credits her horse for helping save her life after she lost both her legs in the attack. She was in the airport just 12 feet away from the bomb that exploded and says everything went dark and she was lifted off the ground. Luckily, she survived the blast and was found by rescue workers and then was transported to a hospital. She underwent a 7-hour surgery to save her life. In addition to having shrapnel removed from her body, her spleen had to be removed as it was shredded, along with both her legs.
"The doctors were able to save my life, but unfortunately they weren't able to save my legs," she shares. Both of her legs were amputated below the knee and she spent 4 months in the ICU. She says depression set in and she had no idea what she was going to do with her life going forward.
"That moment made me decide I wasn't going to give up on life," she says of embracing her horse and explains Deedee helped in her recovery both mentally and physically. After a great deal of hard work in physical therapy, Beatrice was able to eventually ride her horse again and she is happy to share she is training to compete in the 2021 Paralympics.
Despite how COVID-19 delayed the games, Beatrice says she eventually embraced the idea of having an extra year to train and now feels even more confident in the chance of getting the gold medal in her sport.
The Doctors are rooting for Beatrice and can't wait to see how she does at the 2021 games! See the special surprise message the Olympic hopeful gets from fellow Paralympic snowboarder Amy Purdy, in the video below.
