Victoria Arlen’s Unbelievable Medical Mystery and Miracle
Victoria Arlen came on the show to share her remarkable story of overcoming incredible adversity.
At 11 years old, Victoria was diagnosed with two rare conditions and lost the ability to speak, eat, walk and move. Victoria spent four years of her life of being “locked in” in a vegetative state, with doctors unsure if she would survive.
Eventually, Victoria was able to communicate by blinking, and the feeling in her muscles returned. Not only did she regain the ability to walk, she has since become a competitive swimmer, actress, Dancing with the Stars competitor, motivational speaker and one of ESPN’s youngest ever hosts.
