Falling Uphill – Episode 8 – Blindsided

A straight-A student dreams of career on Broadway. And then her stomach explodes. Yes, you read that right. 

 

Amy Oestreicher was a gifted high school student who seemed destined for a career on the stage. After what seemed to be a auspicious meeting with a respected mentor to several Broadway stars took a very dark turn, her life began to spiral out of control, culminating in an unheard of medical emergency. She lingered in a coma for months, and when she awoke she was unable to eat or drink. Putting her life back together seemed all but impossible.
