"I'm not a victim." Gun Violence Survivor Shares Her Story

What we go through makes us stronger, even life-changing, scary situations. Getting shot is something you never think is going to happen to you, but Megan Hobson experienced it and lived through it.

Megan lost more than half of the blood in her body, went into shock and had injuries to her small intestine and nerves in both legs. Getting shot also had a strong impact on personal life including struggling at work and at school with memory problems. Despite all this, Megan is adamant that she's not a victim. She's a survivor.
