Aimee Copeland Flesh Eating Disease

Aimee is holding onto life as she battles necrotizing fasciitis — we hope she’s able to pull through in her recovery.

Aimee Copeland has been fighting a rare flesh-eating disease, and doctors have revealed that her condition is now critical.

Aimee, 24, is fighting for her life at Augusta Hospital in Georgia, Reuters reports.

“All I can say is Aimee is still in critical condition,” spokeswoman Barclay Bishop revealed on May 19.

Aimee is suffering from necrotizing fasciitis, a rare bacterial infection that attacks a patient’s soft tissue. She developed it after a May 1 zip-line accident caused a large gash in her leg.

We wish Aimee and her family the best during this difficult time.

I read yesterday Aimee was in stable condition. I know the hospital had to do more amputations but the article said Aimee was talking a little. My heart goes out to this girl. Her life has completely changed for the worse all over a zip line gash in her leg. She is in my prayers.
