Victoria Arlen spent four years of her childhood in a vegetative state after being diagnosed with two rare autoimmune disorders that caused significant swelling in her brain and spinal cord. Doctors told her family that she would never be able to talk or walk again.
This news was devastating to Victoria and her family. But Victoria was determined not to give up. Through the years Victoria got her ability to speak and move back. The only thing that hasn't come back is the feeling in her legs. But that isn't stopping her from dancing. She can't feel her legs at all but she can tell them to move in her brain.
As a contestant on Dancing With The Stars, she recounted this part of her life and decided to put that emotion into her Most Memorable Year performance. And just wait until you see her dance to the popular song “I Lived” by OneRepublic. Make sure to grab some tissues before you watch this. Victoria's strength is absolutely inspiring!
