Paralympian, Mallory Weggemann, turns tragedy into triumph

It was an injection that paralyzed Mallory Weggemann from the waist down. She walked into the hospital to receive her third — and final — shot to relieve postherpetic neuralgia back pain — and left in a wheelchair. She was 19.

Clearly Weggemann is not a woman to let adversity get her down.
