She and her father spoke at the yearly fundraiser for the non-profit's Home Sweet Home program.
Every year, the Salvation Army in Lawrenceville hosts a luncheon to raise money for its "Home Sweet Home" program. This year, the non-profit invited Aimee Copeland and her father, Andy, as its featured speakers. The theme was "It Takes More than Hands to Make a Home." Andy talked to the audience about how he did not lose faith when his daughter Aimee was injured in a zip lining accident almost one year ago. That accident led to a bacterial infection which claimed her limbs, but not her spirit. Watch the video to see Aimee talk about the life-changing experience and her plans for the future. --Were you there? What did you think of Andy and Aimee's speech?
