When she was just 11-years-old, Lauren Laporta, slipped into her pool and shattered her C5 vertebrate.

Now at 28 years-old she is walking after being paralyzed for 16 years.

With the love and support from her family and friends Lauren has achieved the impossible.

She's been working with trainer, Erica Little, who has been the light to Lauren's days.

Lauren now looks forward to lifting weights and walking alongside Erica. She's even lost 40 pounds in the process.

Lauren now wants her story to spread hope and resources to others going through similar situation.
