American Journey: Boston Marathon survivor's breakup letter to her leg

Rebekah DeMartino has endured 17 surgeries on her leg since she was severely injured in the Boston Marathon bombing. The 27-year-old made the decision to have it amputated this week. She posted a breakup letter on Facebook, wishing her leg the best, but saying she would be cutting it out of her life for good. Anderson spoke with Rebekah and you won't soon forget her courage, positivity and sense of humor.

    I love that she said good bye to her leg! It's a part of her life that is gone. My daughter has a rare and incurable heart disease. We name it Oscar. When we talk about Oscar it keeps it separate from her. She is not her disease!! And she is not a lost leg! http://www.phinvisibledisease.org/
