A LIFE IN PARTS: A TRUE STORY OF AN IDYLLIC LIFE, A DEVASTATING LOSS, AND ONE WOMAN'S RESOLVE TO RISE ABOVE IT -- One cold December morning, Loretta Goebel was wrapping gifts in her basement when the doorbell rang. She ran upstairs and in her haste, hit her hand on the banister. This injury resulted in the loss of both legs, her left hand, and the fingers on her right hand.
Her adjustment and recovery led to a friendship with Paul McCartney and Heather Mills, also an amputee. Loretta's story of triumph is a testament to anyone who is struggling to adjust to difficult circumstances, whatever they may be.
