It can only take a single second for your life to change completely. Alissa Sizemore knows that better than most, and learned that lesson at a very young age. While outside with friends just a little while before she turned seven, her leg was run over by a delivery truck, resulting in an amputation just below the knee.
This kind of event would hit anyone hard, but for Alissa, it was even more significant. Her main passion in life up to that point was ballet. She’d been dancing since age four, half her life. But thanks to tons of support and encouragement from friends, family, and Colby Caillat, this accident hasn’t stopped her, or even slowed her down. In fact, she’s embracing her situation and incorporating it into her choreography.
