For years, I've had much love and respect for Donna...and that's much stronger now after reading her incredible book. This is such an inspiring piece of work that hits home with so many emotions and details that allow us to experience her journey. And trust me: Anyone can relate to this in some form or fashion. Kudos to this spiritual sister for sharing!

Donna’s motivation and drive to be the best is very impressive, but what is most impressive is how she lives her life. Her amputation has not slowed her down or kept her down like many people who suffer an amputation. She lives life to the fullest. She is strong, determined elegant and full of life. I have never seen her down or despondent. She has mentored other patients and is a role model for others that have suffered an amputation. Donna continues to move forward with energy and exuberance.

Donna Hopkins and I both arrive in the National Capital region in the year 1983.
Me as a professional football player and Donna in full pursuit of fulfilling her dreams of becoming both a corporate executive and a sports media personality. While many things have changed over the course of thirty plus years, there is one thing that my friend Donna has never loss, and that is “The Will to Win!
In her book “Getting to The Other Side of Victory” Donna Hopkins does more than just tell her extraordinarily story, she somehow allows each one of us to access the same wind thermals that has helped her to soar to great heights in life, despite tremendous adversity. A must read indeed!
