Boston Marathon bombing survivor Rebekah Gregory marked the 1-year anniversary of her decision to have her leg amputated with a post to her Facebook page on Wednesday.
A year ago Gregory decided to amputate her left leg below the knee after much treatment failed to save the limb. Not long after, she announced that she and her husband Pete DiMartino were separating after just 10 months of marriage.
In her Facebook post on Wednesday, Gregory said that "each and every day has only proven what I have believed all along....that somewhere in the huge mess and all the heartache, there is always a bigger plan. And for that I am so incredibly thankful. Happy 'ampuversary' to me."
Gregory, who now lives in Houston, ran the last few miles of last year's Boston Marathon on her new prosthetic leg last year. She also testified in the death penalty trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the younger of two brothers responsible for the April 2013 Boston Marathon bombings that killed three people and injured 260 others.
