WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Amy Oestreicher had ambitious plans for Broadway until she abruptly developed a blood clot the week before her high school prom. After being rushed to the hospital, her stomach exploded in the operating room, and after both her lungs collapsed, she nearly died. After waking up from a coma several months later, she was told she no longer had a stomach, and it was unknown whether she would ever be able to eat or drink again. After 27 surgeries and spending six of the past 10 years unable to drink a drop of fluid, Amy's digestive system was miraculously reconstructed, and she learned that the human spirit heals through "gutsiness," gratitude, and an abundance of humor.
