Craig DeMartino barely survived his 100 foot fall. After three months in the ER, critical care and rehabilitation centers, he was able to return home to his family and something that resembled his life before the accident. His frail body made living difficult and a rare nerve disorder brought on by the trauma only worsened the situation. Craig was faced with a decision. His right foot would never heal. He would never chase his kids across the backyard or climb again. But there was an option -- amputation. It was a risk, but it seemed no foot might be better than a bad foot. Craig thought long and hard. In an attempt to get his life back, Craig decided he would rather be an amputee than spend the rest of his life regretting.
