Lin Lockamy
In March of 2006, Lin Lockamy was involved in a horrible car accident. Crushed and trapped within the twisted metal, Lin watched for 90 minutes as paramedics fought to free her from the flipped SUV. Transported to the hospital by helicopter, the surgeon wanted to amputate her legs. “He felt that even if he could repair them, I would never walk again,” Lin said. “By God’s grace, I am now walking on my own two legs.” Lin's book is titled “Grace by Which I Stand.” In it, she describes the horrible collision, which impacted her life in more ways than one. It also shows her determination, spiritual growth and the medical professionalism that took her from a wheelchair to the finish line of the Houston Half Marathon. “Faith can grow through any circumstance,” Lin said. “People are far more caring than we think and God does answer prayers. With that in mind, we can get through anything.”
