ALBANY, GA (WALB) - One woman used the Snickers Marathon as an opportunity to prove her doctors wrong.
Twenty-five years ago Stephanie Freeman was in the hospital.
On Saturday she was there again, but this time outside cheering on Snickers Marathon runners.
Freeman suffered a brain injury as a child, and doctors thought she would never walk again.
A runner herself-- she's competed in the Boston Marathon and Snickers Marathon, but decided to serve as a cheerleader for the competitors.
"Running Albany is very special to my heart. Because I laid in that hospital over here for two months in a coma. I had to learn how to walk, talk everything again," explained Freeman.
If you were out running you may have seen her between mile marker 20 and 22.
