Doctors Told Her She Would Never Walk Again, But This Bride-To-Be Had Plans Of Her Own

In the days leading up to her wedding day, Louisiana personal trainer Katie Hughes was involved in a horrific car crash. Her car had been hit by a truck, and it had sent her flying through her windshield and into a ditch, with her burning car landing on top of her, searing her back. The accident had left her paralyzed from the waist down.

She survived. However, doctors told her she would never walk again.

But she had plans of her own…

After staying at the hospital for 100 days, Hughes, a personal trainer and physical therapy assistant, became determined to walk down the aisle on her own two feet.

And slowly but surely, she succeeded…

Katie enjoys her newlywed life and has said it helps to have a partner who is familiar with life-altering injuries: her husband once broke his neck during a car accident that left him with metal rods in his legs.

Hughes still uses her braces and wheelchair at times, depending on the situation. But it’s a far cry from the prediction of doctors that she would be permanently wheelchair bound.

Katie is now back at work, keeping busy with her physical therapy patients and running her gym, Katie’s Shed, where she teaches various cardio and full-body workout classes. She also speaks at local and regional events and hopes her story will inspire others to never give up hope.

Hughes story was also featured on the season debut of TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta”.
