Frankfort native Stephanie Decker became the face of the March 2nd tornado outbreak.

Decker lost both legs shielding her two children from a deadly tornado in Henryville, Indiana, where she lives now.

At the White House today, Decker walked on her new prosthetic legs while holding onto the arm of President Obama. Her husband and kids were also with her in the Oval Office.

Her story inspired a nation, including the President of the United States.
