WATCH: Amy Van Dyken-Rouen walking two months after ATV accident

DENVER — Amy Van Dyken-Rouen posted videos on social media of herself taking steps with the help of a walker and a bionic exoskeleton device.

“Here it is…I’m WALKING!!! #onestepatatime #itcouldhappen,” she wrote in one post.

    Love Amy! such an inspiration, sending all my prayers for the best life you can possibly have. Great to see you take control of life instead of watching it pass by. Maybe someday I can have a fraction of your strength to take control of my life.

    Thank you for sharing your journey Amy!
