Jeff Bauman woke up on 16th April 2013, in the Boston Medical Center, groggy from a series of lifesaving surgeries and missing his legs.

Just 30 hours prior, Jeff was surrounded by revelry at the finish line of the Boston Marathon cheering on his girlfriend, Erin, when the first bomb went off at his feet.

When Jeff awoke, rather than take stock of his completely altered life, he ripped out his breathing tube and tried to speak. He couldn't. So he wrote seven words.

'Saw the guy. Looked right at me,' seven words which set off one of the biggest manhunts in the country's history and began his own brave road to recovery. 
His remarkable story is a testament to what it means to be Boston Strong.
