ANCHORAGE, Alaska — After surviving the devastating earthquake in Haiti, Anchorage resident Christa Brelsford is out of the hospital and back at school in Arizona.
And even though she's still recovering from the loss of part of her leg, Christa is taking big steps to help earthquake victims still struggling in Haiti.
Her family says Christa is happy to be out of the hospital, and now she's tackling a new challenge.
"I expect it to be a challenge. I'm used to running around on two feet," she told a TV station in Miami.
"But it's temporary and I'm really thankful to that," she said.
Though she's out of the hospital in Florida and back at school in Arizona, Christa's fight isn't over.
"I want to ask you to help join me in giving back to the people of Haiti. My family and friends and I have started a fund called Christa's Angels," she said.
