This is Megan Torio, 28 years old now, shed 90 pounds in 2010 to just become a fitness model. And she even appeared on the cover of weight loss edition of Oxygen magazine.
In the violent act on June 2, her boyfriend driving at the speed of 65 mph, pushed her out of the moving truck and kept driving. This tragedy struck her much badly and left her dreams scattered.
Megan after the incident got severe, she smashed her back, spinal cord, collar bone and labia. She was in the wheel chair, paralyzed from the chest down.
The accident sliced Megan's labia which left her unable to have $exual intercourse for almost a year. She felt futile about being not able to walk ever again. She thought that she would never get a kind man.
After going through so many sufferings, Megan underwent a surgery that reconstructed her back and another surgery for the resurrection of labia. This operation included inserting metal rods in her back.
After knowing everything she started getting back to the gym and further she concluded that after the strengthening of muscles only she felt sensation in her lower body. This was her second chance of achieving the goals.
Despite the fact that she would never be able to walk like before, she bought a walking stick that added to her recovery. She pushed herself more on standing part until she could manage to stand on her feet for two minutes.
Megan was among those people who step forward with word impossible, for them there is no such word in the dictionary that can stop them. Henceforth she kept going with her learning process, physiotherapy and now her body was healing.
She was still living in fear and amid all this, she met Rod and she started believing in love again.
Megan wanted to show Rod that she did not need any man to look after her, and so she used a cane instead of the wheel chair. Relating it, Rod proved to be a man Megan always wanted- caring and supportive.
Meanwhile, she continued to intensify her lower body and started standing on her feet for a longer time. The medical team was dazed by seeing her progress.
She has been stronger more than ever, and she is documenting her progress story on Instagram for inspiring people.
