LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Henryville, Ind. mother who lost her legs protecting her children from the March 2, 2012 tornado, is making new strides.
People in Frankfort are applauding Stephanie Decker in a picture she posted on her Facebook page.
She captioned it, "We did it! It passed the House of Representatives!! Senate bound!"
She was referring to a bill requiring insurance companies to pay for the most advanced prosthetics for people who lose limbs.
She's been telling lawmakers how she's able to walk thanks to a similar law in Indiana, which allowed her to afford her high-tech prosthetic legs.
