Last year we were amazed by the story of Aimee Copeland, the woman who was diagnosed with a horrible case of necrotizing fasciitis, a flesh eating bacteria. Copeland lost her left leg, right foot, both of her hands, but managed to survive a disease that claims more than 60 percent of its victims. Well it seems the flesh-eating bacteria has struck again, costing Las Vegas high school dean and father-of-two Eddie Garcia his hands and feet.
Garcia was infected with the illness back in January, causing his lungs and kidneys to fail and other organs to shut down. Today, Garcia is alive with an inspiring attitude and positive outlook on life. Telling a local news outlet that he's at the beginning of his journey, not the end, he's looking forward to his second chance with his family.
Heck, me -- I miss the early bus on my way to work and I'm in a bad mood. This man brushed death and he's so .. optimistic.
