Falling off a 300-foot cliff is usually deadly. Miraculously, Norwegian cyclist Maria With Hoen survived the fall from Bolivia's infamous "Death Road" thanks to a ledge jutting out a mere 30 feet from the top! Although the violent impact left Maria with a shattered spine, she stayed positive through multiple, painful operations to fend off paralysis.

In the years since her 2015 accident, Maria's story has become one of determination and joy as she slowly heals, regains mobility, and ultimately finds inner peace.
