It is every parent's worst nightmare. The phone rings and you learn that your son or daughter has been in a terrible accident.
That call came to Maryland resident Lori Mitchell, who soon learned that her daughter Katelyn was in danger of losing a limb.
But thankfully, Katelyn had been taken to the University of Maryland, where she would receive state-of-the-art trauma and orthopaedic care - a place where hope prevails.
This video is the story of Katelyn's courage and the fight to save her leg.
