No Stopping Boston Bombing Amputee

Mery Daniel lost her leg in the Boston Marathon bombing five months ago, but that won’t stop her from racing for a good cause.“Sunday’s not going to be about me,” Daniel, 31, told WCVB, ABC’s Boston affiliate. “It’s going to be about autism.”Doctors had to amputate  Daniel’s leg above the knee last spring, so she’ll be hand-cycling alongside runners and walkers during a 5K on Oct. 5 to benefit the Charles River Center in Needham, Mass., a nonprofit organization that aids adults and children with developmental disabilities. Her husband, Richardson, works with autistic adults.
