A woman who is now an amputee is talking about her life changing experience.

Heather Abbott of Newport, Rhode Island was standing at the finish line of the Boston Marathon when the blast flung her into a restaurant.

The bomb mangled her left foot so badly that she chose to have it amputated.

Heather says she wants to run, do Zumba, and wear high heels again.
