Overcoming all obstacles: Thunderbolts' Henderson thrives in the face of challenges
Amanda Henderson's life hasn't been easy. But it's the hardships that have made her stronger.
Henderson was born an orphan with cerebral palsy in Moscow, Russia, in 1997. When her parents Dee and Ken Henderson adopted her, at the age of 22 months, she couldn't walk or talk. She's undergone two major reconstructive surgeries, numerous treatments and has endured physical therapy nearly every day since the age of 2.
Yet, despite the struggles, Amanda Henderson has flourished.
