I know nurses "can do it all"...but this nurse really kicks it up a notch!

"Lisa Krajick is a 47-year-old mother of three who works as a nurse at Levindale. When she was 24 she lost part of her right leg when she was stricken with a bone infection called osteomyelitis."

"In the 23 years since her leg was amputated, she has never let anything stop her from fulfilling her dreams, and that includes becoming a powerlifter.

With the aid of a prosthetic (which has a heart painted on it to symbolize her work as a nurse), Lisa has been training at CrossFit Retribution, a gym in Westminster. Over the last seven months she has been learning the art of the deadlift, bench press and squat, and she’s seeing results. In fact, she can now deadlift up to 195 pounds!"

If you have an invisible disability, consider submitting your story or video to the Invisible Disabilities Association. 

Nurses need to be included!
