A Georgia woman who survived a rare fleshing-eating disease told Katie Couric she doesn't take life for granted anymore.
Twenty-four-year-old University of West Georgia graduate student Aimee Copeland walked onto stage Tuesday on Couric's new show, "Katie," using a new walker. Copeland was joined in New York by her parents and sister.
After Couric interviewed the family, she announced that an Atlanta-area Chevrolet dealer was in the studio to give Copeland a new minivan that will be retrofitted so she can drive it.
Copeland got the infection in May after falling from a zip line and gashing her leg. Doctors had to amputate both hands, her left leg and right foot. She returned home to suburban Atlanta last week after three months in the hospital and a rehabilitation clinic.
Tune in for Couric's all-star guest lineup and dish on the hottest topics every day this week on "Katie", airing at 3pm on ABC15.
