Misfortune and renewal:
Colten's Story

On December 27th 2017, Colten Craigin's life changed forever. After being struck by a car while riding his snowmobile, he was rushed to the hospital and placed in a medically induced coma. Over the next several days, Colten would undergo a series of high-risk surgeries in an attempt to save his critically injured leg.

I don’t think I ever got scared or nervous until they started talking about amputation. That’s when I knew I was in serious condition.
