Copeland left a Georgia hospital just weeks after a flesh-eating disease took her limbs but not her life. After nearly two months of battling the rare infection, called necrotizing fasciitis, Copeland headed to an inpatient rehabilitation clinic, where she’ll learn to use a wheelchair after having her left leg, right foot and both hands amputated.
