ATLANTA (AP) - A Georgia woman who survived a rare fleshing-eating disease is expected to discuss her ordeal on Katie Couric's new talk show.
Aimee Copeland, a 24-year-old University of West Georgia graduate student, will be interviewed on Couric's show, "Katie," which airs at 3 p.m. Tuesday on ABC. The show announced that with the help of her prosthetics, Copeland will walk onto the stage.
Copeland contracted the rare infection in May after falling from a zip line and gashing her leg. Doctors had to amputate both hands, her left leg and right foot. She returned home to suburban Atlanta last week after three months in the hospital and a rehabilitation clinic.
