Stefanie Schaffer ‘20: Hope and Healing Through Writing

Stefanie Schaffer was a senior Community Health major at Castleton when she embarked on a dream vacation with her family to the Bahamas in 2018, a trip that would change her life forever. Schaffer was headed to see the swimming pigs of the Exuma Cays with her mother, sister, and stepfather when the tour boat she was on exploded right below her feet. The explosion severely injured her mother, killed another passenger, and left Schaffer with catastrophic injuries to her lower extremities, resulting in her lower legs being amputated, damage to her kidneys, liver, and spleen, and a spinal cord injury. She also suffered a traumatic brain injury and would spend four weeks in a coma with only a 50 percent chance of regaining consciousness.
