Boston bombing survivor to speak at Healthy Woman program
September 14, 2016 @ 6:00 pm$30
Rebekah Gregory, a survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing, will be the featured speaker at the annual Healthy Woman program, which is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 14 at Southwest Ford, 3000 Fort Worth Highway in Hudson Oaks.
On April 15, 2013, two bombs went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three and wounding many. One of the wounded was Gregory, a simple small town woman and mother whose life was forever changed. This horrible act of terrorism left her as one of the names of the seventeen amputees and therefore permanently handicapped at the young age of only twenty six years.
Instead of being bitter, Rebekah has used her platform in a huge way by encouraging others worldwide. Speaking out about her story and own daily obstacles, she believes that life’s struggles are not only meant to teach us lessons, but make us better versions of ourselves than before. Rebekah’s delivery with her quick wit and contagious optimism is sure to have everyone feeling inspired and ready to make their own life changes. Outlining her popular phrase, “with every new day comes new hope” she never fails to leave her audience ready to “change the world.”
Celebrating its ninth anniversary, the Healthy Woman program at Weatherford Regional Medical Center (WRMC) will host Rebekah Gregory and 420 guests at a sit down dinner. Prior to the keynote address, WRMC will offer a free health expo featuring many local businesses from 4-6 p.m.
