Never Say Die : On a Saturday morning in May 1980, Melanie Bowen, a pretty fifteen-year-old, grabbed her leather jacket and crash helmet, yelled a goodbye, and then walked out of the front door into the sunshine for what was to be the last time in her life. Never Say Die is the true story of what followed . . . Since the motorcycle crash that left her paralyzed from the chest down, Melanie's life has been one of extremes. She endured months of despair and indignity in rehabilitation, was in another serious car crash, and was diagnosed with breast cancer. On the plus side, she's won medals in athletics for Wales, dabbled with the film world, and set up her own rehabilitation charity. She has also, against all the odds, found lasting happiness, having fallen in love and married the surgeon who 25 years earlier told her she would never walk again. This is Melanie's story.
