In real life Alice Krueger has severe multiple sclerosis and is unable to walk without the use of crutches. She rarely leaves her home except for trips to see her doctor. In the virtual world of Second Life she leads a radically different existence. Here, she is the avatar Gentle Heron, the co-founder of the Heron Sanctuary - a self-described "support community" for others facing similar situations. In this clip she takes us on a eye-opening tour of her world.
