Nothing is going to stop Melissa Eadie—or even slow her down.

She lost a leg to cancer just before Germanna’s fall semester began.

Without hesitation, the Stafford County resident  forged ahead, taking a full slate of classes as a work-study at the college  and doing quite well in both kinds of school work, thank you.

That should  come as no surprise to those who know her.  She’s a ballet dancer and has vowed to dance again.

Eadie  joined a group of Germanna students visiting members of the state legislature.

She  blogs about it here.
