1. Linsey Heidelberg

Linsey Heidelberg was enjoying her teenage years and looking forward to her first step of independence, turning 16 years old. In addition to being a vibrant leader and National Honor Society member, Linsey loved gymnastics and was a three-time All-American cheerleader.

In August 2004, Linsey suffered a knee injury. After two months of physical therapy, she returned to cheerleading. One week after returning to the squad, Linsey suffered a fractured vertebra (L4 Pars Defect) performing a stunt at practice. This serious injury resulted in a back brace and later surgically implanted wires and screws to stabilize her back. Although Linsey had begun to recover from these two accidents, increasing pain in her leg and back caused her condition to deteriorate until she began to suffer seizures, sometimes lasting up to six hours, due to the intense pain.
