Stephanie Decker, Hero Mom Turned Keynote Speaker, Continues to Use Persistence, Goal Setting, and Motivation to Overcome Adversity
Date:9/6/2013

nt goal setting is, "whether it's a trainer at the gym, or at school, or at your job, goals hold you accountable ... and the more people who know my goals, the more I have to be accountable." One of Stephanie's goals when she met the President of the United States, was to walk to him unassisted, and she met that goal.

Stephanie also made a goal to walk on the Ellen Show, which she did as well. Today, she keeps setting goals and meeting them. It's in her DNA to continue and keep fighting no matter what the challenge.

One of Stephanie's passions is her Stephanie Decker Foundation which focuses amputee children and adults. Her foundation has partnered with Nubability which helps kids with missing limbs play sports. "To see their faces light up, to see them achieve their goals," Stephanie says, "...and do things like able-bodied kids, [that] is priceless."

Stephanie has also become an advocate through her foundation for amputees having access to high-tech prosthetic, like the one she has, the X3, made from Ottobock. This particular model was designed by the military, but wasn't available for civilians. With the help of President Obama, and Stephanie's persistence, she became the first civilian to try the X3. Had she not fought for the access, the high-tech leg may not have been available for another few years.

Stephanie knows she must continue to overcome adversity, but she says, "it's the heart of my story, and the continuation of my story."

She's often asked, "What's your secret [to overcoming adversity]? It's attitude and outlook. It's what you decide to do when you're challenged."
