In this episode, Pedro Pimenta a 24 year-old international speaker, best-selling author, entrepreneur and a mentor to other amputees shares his story of contracting a fatal form of meningitis that soared through his bloodstream in 2009. With slim chances that he would survive, nearly one hundred of his closest friends and family took turns saying their goodbyes. Miraculously, Pedro left the hospital alive six months and two comas later, but in exchange, had all of his limbs amputated above the elbows and knees.
