Kyla Winters nearly lost her life August 24, 2007 when she fell ill at a gathering with friends. At the hospital, all her systems went into failure. What followed, with the diagnosis of bacterial meningitis, was a series of operations, procedures, amputations and eventually a kidney transplant from her twin sister before she was able to leave the hospital. Over time she learned to walk with prosthetic legs and operate with incomplete fingers. She has become an advocate for organ donation and for getting meningitis vaccinations at all ages.
