Amy's Victory Dance
Directed by Award Winning & Emmy Nominee: Brian Thomas
Overview: May 1, 2009. Amy Jordan, a former professional dancer crosses the street and is run over by a 15 ton New York City express bus pinning her under the wheel. As she regains awareness, she has no feeling on the right side of her body. Her first thought, “Am I ever going to dance again?” Her second thought was ’If I survive the night there will be a Victory Dance.’ Amy’s right leg is completely crushed. The first hospital wants to amputate but Amy demands a second opinion. She is transferred to New York Presbyterian Hospital’s burn unit where she is literally rebuilt undergoing 18 surgeries during which she experiences cardiac trauma, a severe bacterial infection in her bones all leading up to thousands of hours of rehabilitation.
