Do you ever feel like there is something more in life or a dream you want to follow, but are too afraid of what others might think? If you ended up in an emergency room fighting for your life, would you have regrets? In 2014, after leaving her policing career, Amanda found herself lacking self confidence. But everything changed in 2017 when Amanda found herself in an emergency room so sick that doctors didn’t think she would make the night. Come hear Amanda's story of resilience, determination, faith, refusal to give up and learning to trust in a higher power.
