Spring Break 2013 may have come and gone, but the memories will last forever. That’s why I’ve created this series, Spring Break Revisited, so I can celebrate great moments in America’s greatest month-long religious holiday. This week’s edition takes us to swingin’ Panama City Beach, Florida and one woman’s amazing, brave battle with vertigo.
Doctors always told Champayne Rose Jenkins that life was going to be tougher for her than for other girls. As a child, she’d suffered from severe vertigo that left her unable to walk without having to grip rails or walls, and she spent all of her spare time in physical therapy while the other kids were out playing Hide N Seek and league Quidditch. “Things will change,” she always told herself, as she clung to her silly dream of becoming a professional dancer.
