Sometimes an unexpected fall can lead a person to reach for magnificent heights.

Dana Liesegang was a lively, athletic, 19-year-old engineman in the U.S. Navy when she was sexually assaulted by a fellow sailor, thrown off a cliff, and left for dead. She survived—but woke up in a hospital hours later paralyzed from the neck down, with doctors giving no hope for recovery.

They underestimated the spirit and stubbornness of their patient. In Falling Up: My Wild Ride from Victim to Kick-Ass Victor, Dana recounts her agonizing and sometimes comical struggle from total dependence to doing the “impossible”—walking again. In the process, she learns the importance of forgiveness, discovers the awe-inspiring power of belief and perseverance, and transforms herself from silent victim to outspoken advocate and inspiration for people everywhere.
